MIRI: The northern part of Miri will soon get increased water pressure with the completion of the 11km pipeline project next month.

According to Laku Management Sdn Bhd chief executive officer, Ir Franklin Ucar, the RM14-million 800mm diameter pipeline project from Padang Kerbau to Emart Tudan is an in-house project by Laku to help consumers living in the areas of Pujut, Senadin and Baram onwards especially during peak hours.

“The project is our long term solution to increase the water pressure to Desa Senadin, Desa Pujut, Jalan Tudan and the surrounding areas because during peak hours the water pressure is very low.

“For the southern part, Rural Water Supply Department has undertaken the construction of a reservoir at Jalan Hills here to be completed January next year. Upon completion, it will be handed over to Laku,” he said during a visit to Miri Home for the Aged Care Centre in Krokop here recently as part of Laku’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.

Franklin added that as a caring organisation Laku will continue to reach out to the community by giving back to those in need regardless of age or background. Our staff involvement in CSR programmes help them connect with the community.

He presented a total of RM1,750 in ‘ang pow’ and hampers to 29 elderly residents of the home during the visit after Laku’s management and staff treated them to lunch with person-in-charge Kapitan Betty Pong.

Franklin advised the public to conserve water and treat water as an important commodity.

“Should there be any issue or suggestion, check with our 24-hour customer service line at 085-436626/426626 or visit Laku website at for confirmation,” he said.

Also present were Laku Management Sdn Bhd senior manager for human resource and administration Bong Shi Yee, Laku Miri area manager Ha Tung Ngie and finance and ICT senior manager Affendi Taher.
