UMS To Enhance Water Supply Amid Campus Demand


Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) is set to improve its water supply, with a planned increase to approximately five million litres per day.

UMS vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Kasim Mansor said this enhancement would involve a combination of external supply and internal resources.

Four million litres per day will be provided by Sabah Water Department, with the remaining one million litres per day expected from the completion of eight tube wells on campus.

The addition of the tube wells aims to complement the existing supply, addressing the needs of the 22,000 individuals on campus during the day, including residential students.

This information was shared during the UMS Premier Breaking of Fast event.

The move comes as a response to previous challenges in water supply, primarily from the Telibong Water Treatment Plant in Tuaran, which struggled to meet demand.

The situation has improved slightly with the completion of the Telibong 2 Phase Two project last year and subsequent pipeline works.

Kasim said six of the tube wells funded through a RM3 million grant announced by the prime minister last year are now operational.

Final installations and pipeline connections to the residential colleges were on schedule, with full completion expected by April.
