The 3rd PTSP cost RM114.3 million, and the project was commissioned as scheduled. Works were completed safely and successfully, despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
As at 2021, the 3rd PTSP is “invisible”. All its components have been buried in the seabed and underground.
Nevertheless, it helps to ensure that everyone on Penang Island has enough water supply every day.
The 3rd PTSP also helps to mitigate water risks during prolonged dry seasons, in relation to climate change.
For Penang, the 3rd PTSP is a strategic water supply engineering project for the future. The people and the State of Penang must have sufficient water to achieve a healthy socioeconomic recovery in the post-pandemic era.
