Kota Bharu


  The Kota Bharu sewerage project relates to change of existing pipelines with new material according to SPAN guidelines. This project is unique as this is the first project to cater sullage water as sewer and channeled into catchment for treatment. The project evolves within Flat Buluh Kubu, Tanjung Chat, Taman Desa Kemumin and Taman Perumahan JPN Padang Tembak Residential areas which is part of the Majlis Perbandaran Kota Bharu (MPKB) jurisdiction. The catchment is directed to existing STP for treatment before discharged. The project requires 560 property connections to be constructed to cater sullage water.

  This Kota Bharu (K31) project is implemented by Jabatan Perkhidmatan Pembetungan, Kementerian Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air, Malaysia (KETTHA). The rationalization works comprise NPS 1 and 2 which the flow was gravitated to nearest CRSTP TAMAN Perumahan JPN. This construction of new sewer pipeline is approximately 5 KM and pipes laid by open cut method only. Decommissioning of the Pump Stations and construction of new pipeline was designed to improve the catchment system and minimize the leachate. It also guarantees constant flow direct to CRSTP instead of stored in CST which caused a lot of problems for the residents..

The aims of this project are:

  • To establish a new and effective sewage pipeline gravitated direct to CRSTP to replace CST which will reduces the pollution and improve locals living quality.


  • To minimize pump station and reduce operation cost of operator, Maajari Sdn. Bhd. The system will improve water quality and resolve bad odor issue faced by local residence.


  • Establishing green areas through the rationalization of the old pump stations and pipelines.


  • To establish a new sewerage system which is cost effective in terms of operational and maintenance wise
