The water supply has been restored: Pangkor Island is ready to welcome back tourists – MB Perak

By Aida Aziz

IPOH: The unscheduled water supply disruption issues that plagued Pulau Pangkor since early this month has been fully restored.

Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad stated that, as a result, the tourism sector on the resort island is also ready to welcome tourists again.

“The leakage issues in several cross-sea floor pipelines that caused the aforementioned problem have been successfully resolved following mitigation measures implemented by the Perak Water Board (LAP).

“In addition to repair works, LAP has also implemented several mitigation measures to address the issue, including optimizing water supply to the Manjung district.

“Implementing the re-zoning of supplies in the affected areas, water tank trucks are ready to be mobilized, and static tanks are strategically placed,” he said here today.

Meanwhile, Saarani mentioned that the water levels on Pulau Pangkor are showing a positive increasing trend.

Meanwhile, areas that previously experienced water supply disruptions, including Teluk Nipah, Teluk Dalam, and Sungai Pinang Kecil, are reported to have fully recovered.

“The tourism enthusiasts, including chalet and guesthouse owners affected by water supply issues, can now resume operations as usual.

“Although the situation on Pangkor Island has returned to normal, LAP will continue to monitor the stability of water supply to the area to prevent a recurrence, especially during the Visit Perak Year 2024 campaign,” he added.

Previously, the media reported that alleged water supply issues have affected tourist arrivals on Pangkor Island, causing losses for hotel businesses.
