This dam was built to store water for domestic supply to the town of Johor and neighboring villages.
It was decided to increase its capacity using the fusegate system to store a greater proportion of the water that falls during the rainy season.
The fusegate system not only increased storage capacity by nearly 5 million m³ but also significantly improved the water quality.
The entire preparation and installation work was completed in just under three months.
The existing sill was modified to receive the fusegates that were fabricated and galvanized off-site.
