There’s Not Enough Water And Here’s What We Need To Do

Faizal Akmal, CEO, Rivil Water

There’s Not Enough Water And Here’s What We Need To Do

Charles Santiago, National Water Services Commission Chairman told the Star that Malaysia must spread our water supply within states at a greater degree for the wellbeing of Malaysians. According to him, we see Penang and Kedah’s river level dropping, but there are surpluses from Perak’s dam.

So how should the government and water companies do to curb water shortages? What can we do to make sure that our taps don’t run dry?

We speak to Faizal Akmal, CEO of Rivil Water, a water supply and irrigation system tech company that is trying to solve water challenges in Malaysia.
