Penang’s treated water among the cleanest, safest & healthiest in Malaysia!

Penang’s treated water is amongst the cleanest, safest and healthiest in Malaysia, according to Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang Sdn Bhd (PBAPP).

PBAPP chief executive officer Datuk Jaseni Maidinsa said the findings were based on 3,148 tests conducted by PBAPP on treated water in the state, in the past 11 months.

He said under its Quality Assurance Programme (QAP), the Ministry of Health (MOH) has set the national parameters for water turbidity, free residual chlorine, e-coli bacteria, e-coli + free residual chlorine and aluminium in treated water.

“In Penang, PBAPP’s Central Laboratory and the Penang State Health Department, under the MOH, jointly sample and test treated water regularly in accordance to the National Drinking Water Quality Surveillance programme (NDWQS).

“The treated water test results for Penang for 2019 (to date) showed that PBAPP’s ‘product’ complied with all the MOH requirements, with significant achievements recorded well below the QAP parameters for microbial and chemical contents,” he said in a statement, here, today.

Jaseni also said the PBAPP Central Laboratory received its third consecutive ‘Laboratory Excellence Award’ from the Malaysian Institute of Chemistry yesterday.

He said this year’s award to the PBAPP Central Laboratory was specifically for the field of water testing and the laboratory had won a similar award in 2017.

“The PBAPP Central Laboratory was established in 2008. It has played a key role in supporting PBAPP’s water treatment operations in terms of quality assurance, especially at the Sungai Dua Water Treatment Plant, Penang’s largest water treatment plant.

“On average, the Sungai Dua Water Treatment Plant produced about 900 million litres of treated water per day, or more than 80 per cent of the treated water consumed in Penang in 2019. Tests on the treated water verify that the quality is good and consistent,” he added.

槟州供水控股有限公司及槟州供水机构首席执行员拿督杰瑟尼指出,槟州供水机构(PBAPP)在过去的11个月,对槟城的净水进行了3148次的测试。结果显示,槟州的净水是全马其中一个最干净、最安全和最健康的,符合州政府的“更干净、更绿意、更安全和更健康的槟城”政策。

他说,卫生部(MOH)在其质量保证计划(QAP)下制定了净水的浑浊度、游离余氯、大肠菌群、大肠杆菌+游离余氯和铝的全国参数。为了公共健康和安全问题,马来西亚各地的水务运营商必须遵守这些参数要求。

他说,槟州供水机构的中央实验室和卫生部属下的槟州卫生局根据国家饮用水质量监督计划(NDWQS),定期联合对净水进行采样和测试。从2019年至目前为止的净水测试结果显示,槟州供水机构的“产品”符合卫生部的所有要求,并且取得显著成就,所测得的微生物和化学含量远低于质量保证计划参数。

他指出,槟州供水机构中央实验室于12月6日连续第三年获得马来西亚化学会(IKM)的“实验室卓越奖”。该全国性奖项认可符合MS ISO/IEC 17025:2005实验室认证,并具有分析工作实践能力的马来西亚实验室。

槟州供水机构中央实验室成立于2008年。它在支持槟州供水机构的滤水业务方面,特别是质量保证方面发挥了关键作用,尤其是在槟城最大的滤水厂——双溪赖滤水厂。

槟州供水机构中央实验室除了测试9个滤水站的净水外,还测试了从慕达河抽取的原水的质量。槟州供水机构的人员使用经过认可的科学测试来“随时关注”河水的质量,确保它“足够好”,以接受槟州供水机构在槟城使用的常规水处理。

因此,槟州供水机构中央实验室是重要的设施。它有助确保槟城提供的净水根据卫生部制定的质量保证计划参数,适合公众使用。马来西亚化学会的“卓越”奖验证了该实验室在2019年的良好表现。
