RM18 million solution to Felda Chini water problem

THE water supply problem at Felda Chini in Pekan, which has dragged on for several years during droughts, is expected to be over with the construction of an RM18 million off-river storage (ORS) reservoir at the intake point of Sg Mentiga.

Pahang Menteri Besar Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said the project, expected to start in September, would take about a year to complete with the tender process being implemented by the Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) this month.
