RM424.6m to fix water woes
THE state government has allocated a substantial sum of money under Budget 2017 to overcome its water woes.
While tabling the state budget, Mohamed Azmin pledged to reduce non-revenue water from the current 35% to 29% by 2019.
“To achieve this, the state government will allocate RM324 million to address the issues of burst pipes and to replace old pipes running some 422.5km in 84 hot spots for three years starting 2016,” Azmin said yesterday.
Another RM100.6 million will also be allocated to Air Selangor for pipe replacement works.
