If you read Btimes or The Star, you may notice the issue brought up by The Malaysian Water Association (MWA). It is sound like they have an intention to increase the water tariff, not for a certain state but all around the country. My friend said, it is sound bullshit.
I am in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. For those who stay in Kelantan, I assume they know that Kelantan is in water crisis since years ago but become more critical within this year. I have to install a water pump at my house, no choice at all. Air Kelantan Sdn. Bhd should be changed to Angin Kelantan Sdn. Bhd because of very bad service provided.
How could they talk about waste of water because their supply is far lower than demand.
If they do provided enough water for us, then I think they have right to talk about increase the price. Otherwise, don’t lah. Our living cost is so high already, don’t make it higher.
Below is the extract from The Star
KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Water Association (MWA) has proposed that water utility companies in the country review the current water tariff structure in their respective states as a sustainable measure to face an impending water crisis.
MWA president Ahmad Zahdi Jamil said this was because the current tariff did not promote water sustainability and besides being too cheap, it was also not punish excessive use.
