New RM1.2b dam to be built in Penang

GEORGE TOWN: The federal government will build a new dam besides enlarging the Mengkuang dam in Penang in a bid to increase water capacity in the state by 3.8 times.

State Barisan Nasional (BN) working committee chairman Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan, said the RM1.2 billion project would be implemented soon.

To this end, an agreement will be inked between Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng in Putrajaya on Thursday.

Dr Teng said the deal showed that the federal government had not forsaken Penang although the BN was no longer at the helm.

“The project demonstrates that the BN federal government has not marginalised the state government led by the opposition pact, as claimed by Lim Guan Eng,” he told reporters here on Monday, May 30.

Dr Teng said that for the past 50 years, the BN government had been giving attention to the state’s water supply needs, which included the construction of Air Itam, Teluk Bahang and Mengkuang dams. –Bernama
