PENANG, Monday (29.7.2019) – An existing 900mm MS (mild steel) water supply pipeline will be diverted away from a JKR road widening project site at Jalan Sungai Bakap this Friday night.
To facilitate the pipeline diversion works, Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang Sdn Bhd (PBAPP) has to temporarily shut down the 900mm pipeline.
The pipeline shutdown will disrupt water supply services for about 40,000 people in Seberang Prai Selatan who may experience no water supply and/or low water pressure for 12 hours overnight.
Water consumers in the following areas are advised to kindly store sufficient water for use from 10.00pm on Friday, 2.8.2019, to 10.00am on Saturday, 3.8.2019:
Please refer to the map in ‘Appendix A’ that shows all the affected areas.
Kindly note that this scheduled water supply interruption is related to JKR road widening works at Jalan Sungai Bakap.
The 900mm water supply pipeline must be safely diverted away from the JKR work site to avoid mishaps such as a burst pipeline that will lead to unscheduled water supply interruptions.
PBAPP deeply regrets any inconvenience caused. Please remember to store sufficient water for overnight use.
