Water supply

Word on the street is that Mersing and the military camp are in for a new water supply facility, said to be contracted out to Ranhill Sdn. Bhd.. The project is apparently to start within the next year, to alleviate residents of Mersing from water shortages. At present the military camp is not at full capacity, so a new water supply would be appropriate. The project is rumoured to involve a partial and moveable dam fixed upon a Johorean river, such that water will be diverted to a treatment facility. For more information on other water treatment projects by Ranhill, click here.

I left Mersing in 1967 having lived there for many years.There used to be water rationing almost every year without fail. Nearly 40 years later and the same rumour about improvements to the town\'s water supply is still doing the rounds. I have to allow myself a little smile. Hope springs eternal...
