Projek Loji Rawatan Air Pahang-Selangor RM8 bilion

Pahang bakal mendapat Projek loji rawatan air Pahang-Selangor yang bernilai RM 8 bilion di sempadan negeri bila Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim bersetuju dengan tawaran kerajaan negeri Pahang. Khalid merujuk tawaran DS Adnan Yaakob MB Pahang yang menawarkan untuk membina loji rawatan air jika Selangor tidak berminat.

WZWH amat menyokong langkah baik DS Adnan Yaakob kerana projek pembangunan ini boleh mengembangkan ekonomi negeri Pahang.

DS Adnan akan mengarahkan pegawai-pegawainya mencari tapak alternatif di Pahang. Projek kerajaan Federal ini terganggu kerana Selangor tidak mahu memberikan tapak tanah.

Isu krisis air menjadi perdebatan antara Selangor dan kerajaan Federal. Selangor mahu melambatkan projek itu kerana tidak merasakan ianya satu keperluan terdesak.

WZWH sangat bersetuju dengan tindakan MB Selangor ini. WZWH mahu Projek Loji Rawatan Air Pahang-Selangor bernilai RM8 bilion ini di beri kepada Pahang.

Jika loji rawatan air itu siap kelak, Pahang dijangka mendapat pendapatan tahunan sebanyak RM70 juta setahun. WZWH merasakan ini baik untuk ekonomi negeri Pahang menjana pendapatan alternatif.


Shah Alam-Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said today Pahang was welcomed to build a new water treatment plant for the Pahang-Selangor raw water treatment project on its side of the border, but he maintained the RM8 billion project was not urgent.

“We are confident the state has enough water to last till 2019,” said the Selangor mentri besar.

Khalid was responding to a statement by his Pahang counterpart Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, who offered to build the water treatment plant “if Selangor was not interested”.

Adnan yesterday said he would instruct his officers to look for an alternative site in Pahang.

The federal government project has stalled because Selangor has been reluctant to allocate land for it.

“The project should be put on hold for the time being until the restructuring of the water industry in Selangor is complete,” said Khalid.

Both the federal and Selangor governments are at loggerheads over the cost of taking over the management of water from four concessionaires.

Khalid added that delaying the project would not cause a water crisis as alleged by the federal government.

“We regret that the federal government is deliberately using the issue of a water crisis to pressure Selangor to accept their restructuring plan.”

He also accused the federal government of delaying negotiations for water restructuring to protect “crony companies” and not consumers.

“Selangor holds to the principle that water is the right of the people and should be returned to the people,” said Khalid.

Adnan yesterday also said Selangor would have to be accountable to the people if there was a critical water shortage in the Klang Valley in 2014.

Under the interstate water project, 1.89 billion litres of raw water will be supplied daily to Selangor, while Pahang is expected to generate annual revenue of RM70 million.
