SANDAKAN: A building contractor was slapped with a fine totaling RM30,000 for offences framed under the Water Supply Enactment 2003 by the Water Department yesterday.

State Water Department Enforcement Chief Azmie Sabli said the department’s enforcement officers detected the offences during checks on a construction site at Bandar Perdana here on the first day of the integrated operation.

At about 11am, the enforcement officers cut the water supply to the construction site that was illegally tapped from the main pipeline and also sourced from the fire hydrant, Azmie said.

Azmie said the woman proprietor of the building contractor, aged 56, was fined RM25,000 under Section 49(b) of the Water Supply Enactment 2003 for illegally tapping water supply and another RM5,000 under Section 57 for unlawful taking water from fire hydrant.

A police report on the offences was lodged on the same day, Azmie said.

Azmie again reminded all consumers to adhere to rules stipulated under the Water Supply Enactment 2003 or risk being slapped with a hefty fine if caught committing the offence.

He also called for public cooperation in immediately reporting any water thefts or leakages to the Sandakan Water Department Hotline 089 663 001. – By James Leong
