Negri Sembilan will sell water only if there is surplus
SEREMBAN: Negri Sembilan will only sell water to Selangor if there is a surplus in supply, said Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.
He said the state would not sell it if the supply was inadequate to meet the needs of the people in the state.
"We are now at the initial stage of negotiations with National Water Services Commission (SPAN). The commission wanted to buy water from the state to meet the demands in Selangor.
"SPAN is now negotiating with us and we are still waiting for the Ngoi-Ngoi plant to be operational by mid year. This is because we want to ensure the water supply in the Seremban district is sufficient before we commit to sell treated water to SPAN," he told reporters after chairing the weekly Exco meeting, today.
He said the Ngoi-Ngoi plant, which was still under construction, was expected to be able to produce between 55 and 60 million gallons of treated water per day while the existing Sungai Terip plant was also producing the same amount of treated water.
