Water rates up 22 sen/m3 from next month in peninsula, Sabah

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 17 — The National Water Service Commission (SPAN) today announced an increase of 22 sen per cubic metre of consumption that will affect users in Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah.

According to national news agency Bernama, the commission said the increase would be imposed starting February 1.

However, SPAN said that water tariffs in the country would remain comparatively low despite the increase, and was still not enough to cover the actual costs to reliably supply the entire country.
