NIBONG TEBAL: The RM6.15mil construction of a giant water tank and other facilities to restore water pressure for almost 4,000 users in Universiti Sains Malaysia (Engineering Campus) here will be completed ahead of schedule.

Deputy Works Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said the project, which started in February last year, was initially scheduled to be completed by the end of August.

"I'm glad to announce that the project will now be completed by the end of July, about one month ahead of schedule.

"It will meet the clean water supply needs of the 147ha campus with 3,900 residents.

"For the past 10 years, they have been faced with low water pressure of below 14psi, and this project would resolve the issue," he said after visiting the project site at the back of the campus on Friday (July 5).

The project includes the construction of a 30m-tall water tank with a capacity of 1.597 million litres, a suction tank capable of holding 795,000 litres and a pump house, as well as necessary electrical and mechanical works.

Also present was Penang infrastructure and transport committee chairman Zairil Khir Johari.
