State govt hopes to kick off Papar dam project in April

25th March, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah government hopes to get the controversial RM2 billion Papar water dam project off the ground next month.

Infrastructure Development Minister Datuk Peter Anthony said that they are currently designing and surveying the proposed dam at the identified river source.

“We hope to get it started by next year as we are also waiting for reports from Department of Environment and as well as other relevant agencies.

“Everything should be in place in six months, hopefully we can start it,” he told reporters after attending the World Water Day run in Penampang on Sunday.

The Papar dam was important for water security to meet the needs of the growing development and population for the Papar and Kota Kinabalu areas, he said.

He said that the current supplies from the Babagon dam and Tuaran treatment water plant would not be able to cope with the water needs of the greater Kota Kinabalu area.

He said the Ulu Padas dam project which expected to begin soon will provide sufficient water supplies for Sipitang and Beaufort.
