THE Sarawak government has given its assurance that the Bengoh Dam, about 40km south of Kuching, is “technically and structurally sound and stable” in a direct denial to a news report saying the dam was leaking.

In the report, two PKR members said that the roller compacted concrete (RCC) dam, used as a water reservoir for Kuching and the neighbouring towns of Bau, Samarahan and Lundu, was “showing signs of leaking”.
