Urban Wellbeing Housing and Local Government Minister Abdul Rahman Dahlan reiterated today that the proposed Tambatuon Dam in Kota Belud would be implemented only when the local residents agree to it.
"The project will serve many purposes actually, such as providing irrigation for paddy fields, providing clean (treated) water, and mitigate floods.
"It will also ensure that residents in the area will have sufficient water supply in times of drought, and for electricity generation in future. All these will help Kota Belud to develop," he told reporters at his Aidilfitri open house in Kota Kinabalu today.
