GM: Masterplan study proposals to be presented to BDA management board

Rodziah shows the final report of the masterplan study.

BINTULU:  A few recommendations have been received following the completion of the Stormwater Management and Urban Drainage Masterplan Study for Bintulu town in 2018, especially to prevent flash floods, Bintulu Development Authority (BDA) general manager Rodziah Morshidi has said.

She said the study was conducted by a private consultant, Jurutera Jasa (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd, after Bintulu was hit with major floods in 2014.

Rodziah said the finding of the study had been presented and tabled to the BDA Management Board.

She added the same consultant was appointed to look into the best way to address the flash floods at Kampung Assyakirin and the surrounding areas.

As for Kampung Kemunting, she said the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) had their own plan which would be finalised and presented to the Bintulu Division Flood Technical Committee chaired by Bintulu Resident.

“However the plans by DID and BDA will need time to be implemented, so if there are heavy rains in the coming days, or weeks surely the same issue will crop up.

“So we want understanding from people in the villages to expect any torrential rain that will happen to cause the same effect, because what we plan will take time,” she said.

Rodziah was addressing a press conference after chairing a dialogue with DID and representatives from the Village Security and Development Committee (JKKK) of Kampung Assyakirin at Wisma Bintulu yesterday.

She said BDA had received very good feedback from the representatives of the JKKK of Kpg Assyakirin over the proposals recommended by BDA and Jurutera Jasa (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd.
