PITAS: Some 100 families from Kg. Pinapak, here, receive clean water supply beginning today through the Water For Life Programme by Petronas.
The Management Director cum Chief Executive Officer for Petronas Dagangan Bhd, Ibrahimnuddin Yunus, said Kg. Pinapak is the first area in Sabah that is selected for the programme.
“The village has been selected since it is located at a remote area and rely on rain and the nearby river for water supply,” she said after launching the programme at Kg. Pinapak.
He also said Petronas has built a pipe system connecting the nearby river with two tanks that can store up to 9,500 litre of water each.
“Water from the river is channelled to the tank with a Generator Set, and it will be filtered before distributed to local villagers via the pipe system,” he he said adding that RM70,000 has been allocated by Petronas for the project at Kg. Pinapak.
Water for Life Programme was introduced in 2013 with the concept of community welfare service by Petronas. –SayangSabah
