Melaka residents to face water rationing if no rain by June 15

MELAKA (May 23): Residents here will face water rationing if the State does not receive rain by June 15, said Melaka Chief Minister Adly Zahari.

He said although the State Government had performed an initial seeding process last week, rainfall only occurred outside the water catchment area.

He said the situation did not contribute to the increase in water levels at the Durian Tunggal Dam which recorded a reading of 37.8 percent.

“So far, the Durian Tunggal Dam is the most affected with the water level at 37.8 percent compared with the Jus Dam (at 66.4 percent) and the Asahan Dam (at 62.5 percent),” he told reporters at a press conference after chairing the Melaka State Executive Council Meeting here, yesterday.
