SAINS Public Relations Division chief, Norzita Ismail said SAINS had recorded RM9.6 million in arrears as of September this year by domestic, industrial and other consumers.

”The is too big and can curb SAINS’ continuous effort to provide water supply service in Negeri Sembilan. The consumers are urged to promptly settle their arrears and current bills to avoid disconnections,” she said in a statement here today.

”The issue of illegal connection is a major issue. It is also SAINS’ continuous effort to ensure the output of SAINS’ Non-Revenue Water (NRW) can be curbed. A total RM39 million in NRW was lost from January until August this year in Negeri Sembilan,” she said.
