Drought 2025: Selangor ready 98 water catchment points for support

SHAH ALAM: A total of 98 water catchment areas consisting of ponds, lakes and former mines will be used by the Selangor government to support water supply in the event of a drought in 2025.

Chairman of the Standing Committee on Infrastructure and Public Facilities, Modernization of Agriculture and Selangor Agro-Based Industry, Ir. Izham Hashim said the Selangor Water Management Board (LUAS) gazetted 20 former mines in addition to identifying 78 new additional ponds for this matter.

“Out of the total, the state government approved 21 ponds selected to be upgraded in the Raw Water Guarantee Scheme (SJAM).

“These selected pools are expected to be able to provide additional water supply with durability for two months,” he said at the Third Meeting of the Fifth Term of the Selangor State Assembly at the Annex Building, here, yesterday.

He answered a question from Subang Jaya State Assembly Member Michelle Ng Mei Sze who asked what the state government’s action plan is to deal with prolonged drought starting in 2025.

Meanwhile, Izham informed that the Selangor Irrigation and Drainage Department (JPS) will assess the 127 flood reservoirs in the state as a source of water supply to deal with the phenomenon.

“This is to see if it can also act dually as a flood reservoir and an alternative water source during the dry season,” he stressed. – MESSENGER
