The State Works Ministry is looking into transforming the Water Department into Water Commission and as a corporate body. Works Minister Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin said the Water Department has not been profitable in its operations. Indeed, the department’s expenditure exceeds its income by RM300 million, while also suffering from non revenue water (NRW), he said. “With the commission, there will be less bureaucracy. The corporatisation (of the Sabah Water Department) will result in the creation of a different image, a different spirit,” he said.
