SANDAKAN: The Water Department is pulling the plug on water thieves in the district.

It has roped in the assistance of Salcon Engineering and other appointed contractors to conduct checks against illegal water supply connections on Thursday.

The operation was held in Kampung Karamunting, Jalan Trig Hill and Block B Sim Sim Flat from 9am to 12.15pm following information received.

The illegal connections were cut. Those in Karamunting who were fire victims, escaped penalty and were let off with a stern warning to re-activate their water account.

The department’s Divisional Engineer Ishar Hamka Ismail said 18 cases were detected in Kampung Karamunting while there was one incidence in Jalan Trig Hill.

Ishar advised consumers to comply with the law as stipulated under the Water Supply Enactment 2003.

Those found committing the offence are liable to be fined up to RM50,000 or two years’ imprisonment under Section 49(b) and Section 53 of the Enactment, he said.

He called for public cooperation in reporting to the Sandakan Water Department on water thefts or pipe leakage at hotline 1300 8888 55.
