PASIR GUDANG: Water rationing will take place in Pasir Gudang and some parts of Johor Baru if the water level at the Sungai Layang dam drops to 19 metres.

This is expected to take place within two to three weeks if the dry spell continues.

National Water Services Commission Malaysia (SPAN) chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Ridhuan Ismail told this to reporters after visiting the dam, which supplies raw water to the Sultan Iskandar water treatment plant.

The water level at the dam was registered at 19.55m today, which is below the critical level of 23.5m.

Ridhuan urged the public to start conserving water immediately.

"Every drop of water counts," said Ridhuan.

The team also visited four other dams in the state, including the Congok dam.

Also present was SPAN commissioner Datuk Roger Tan.
