RINAH of Telipok is advised to provide Public Works Department (PWD) the exact location of the clogged cross culvert that transverse beneath a section of Jalan Tuaran in Telipok. 

She claimed that debris and rubbish that clogging the culvert was the main cause of the flash flood in her house compound during a recent heavy rain. 

 “The entire compound tends to flood so easily when it rains heavily for at least 10 minutes,” she told Hotline briefly on Sept 6.  

She also claimed the flood water would even overflow onto the main road.

 “This place is not a flood-prone area simply because it is located on a much higher ground compared to the nearby areas,” she added.  

A PWD spokesman said the maintenance work could be carried out should the exact location of the culvert was known. 

 “It is premature to pin point clogged culvert was a result of the flooding as it could be something else,” he added. 

Rinah is advised to furnish the required details to Hotline soon as possible. (OV)
