Source: The Jakarta Post
JAMBI, Jambi: The dry season has dropped water debit in Batanghari River to two cubic meters per second from the normal six cubic meters per second, reducing the water supply at state-run tap water company PT Tirta Mayang in Jambi municipality.
Yusnidar, the head of administrative affairs at the company, said a lack of rain over the past few weeks had left the company unable to deliver potable water to over 4,000 residents in five districts in Jambi municipality.
The company has a total of 43,561 customers. -- JP
