SANDAKAN: Illegal tapping of water supply was detected at two squatter colonies in the district by the Water Department during an operation on Saturday.

The department’s enforcement officers with the assistance of appointed contractor, Salcon Engineering cut off the illegal connection at the illegal settlement in front of the Pangiran Galpam Mosque in Mile 7 Jalan Labuk and Mile 2 Kampung Bakau between 11am and 4pm.

Several accessories used for stealing water supply from the main distribution pipeline by irresponsible quarters were also seized from the two locations.

Sandakan Water Department divisional engineer Ishar Hamka Ismail said illegal tapping of water supply is an offence under Section 49(b) of the Sabah Water Supply Enactment 2003 which provides for a fine up to RM50,000 or two years’ imprisonment, upon conviction.

“We urged the public to notify us on water theft or pipe leakage by channeling the information to the Sandakan Water Department Hotline 088 326 888,” Ishar said.
