GEORGE TOWN, Oct 18 – Water supply operations at the Guillemard Reservoir Compound in Tanjong Bungah are NOT affected by the collapse of a section of Jalan Lembah Permai last Thursday (13/10/2016). The twin Guillemard Reservoirs are located uphill and about 30 metres away from the collapsed road section. The maximum capacity of these reservoirs is 34.45 million litres.

Senior Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang Sdn Bhd (PBAPP) personnel were on-site on the day of the mishap. On Oct 14, Dato’ Ir. Dr. Gue See Sew, a geotechnical consultant for the Penang State Government, inspected the site and declared the reservoirs to be safe and stable at present. The Guillemard Reservoirs were built on bedrock in 1929. PBAPP has not detected any cracks or movement on the slopes of the road leading to the reservoir compound.

All heritage water supply buildings in this restricted reservoir compound appear to be safe. Water supply operations are being conducted normally. No PBAPP water pipelines were affected by the collapsed road. As such, the safety and security of the Guillemard Reservoir Compound, as well as water supply services in Tanjung Tokong and Tanjong Bungah, have not been compromised by the mishap.

PBAPP will continue to closely monitor developments at the reservoir compound as the Jalan Lembah Permai is being repaired by the Public Works Department (JKR). PBAPP said they will coordinate with JKR to ensure that our existing water pipelines in the area are not compromised by the road repairs.
