30 to 40 years, that’s how long it’ll take for Kelantan to fix its water woes, according to estimations by the Water and Environment Ministry.

Its Minister Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said around RM7.3 billion would be needed to solve the problem of floods and provide water supply in Kelantan.

He said that the state’s water supply problem would require the replacement of pipes to reduce water loss.

He said the Ministry would apply for the Economic Planning Unit to enable the proposal to be included in the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP).

The allocation involved several major projects including the three-phase Flood Mitigation Project in Tumpat, Rantau Panjang and Pasir Mas. In addition, Tunjung has already approved an integrated sewerage project involving RM600 million and other projects for flood and water supply issues.
