Hopefully, locals could use them to meet water needs.
Panggang Island Urban Village Head, Muhammad Fakih Burhanudin explained the rainwater tankswere made to accommodate water that previously existed at several points in residential areas.
Besides meeting residents' water needs, it also minimized groundwater use in the area.
"We use rainwater for the residents' water supply. By so, the groundwater supply does not become depleted and the island does not erode quickly," he stated.
