WB1 Why did I not receive my monthly water bill(s)?

Sibu Water Board follows a schedule on delivering water bills. Water bills in your area are yet to be sent. If you have requested your water bills to be sent by post, it will take at least one week to reach your area/house. Please make sure that a letter box is available and your address is valid. If your house is at 305m or more from the main road, we will only put your water bill(s) at meter point. Do go and check to see if your water bill(s) are at the meter point. If not, please call Sibu Water Board immediately at 084-211001 and we will look into this problem promptly.

WB2 Why do I need to pay so much for my water bill this month? Is there something wrong with my water meter? Can you please help me to check my water meter?

First of all, you have to counter-check the “present reading” in your water bill to see if the number/figure matches with the reading at the water meter. Then, check on your internal pipe system to see if there is a leakage problem. If you still have the problem with it, we would send an officer to your premise to check on your water meter. For this, you will have to pay RM20.00 for the meter testing. If your meter is found to be faulty, we shall return your money and your water bill will be corrected based on your bill charge in the previous month . In contrast, we will keep that money if the meter is found to be accurate.

Firstly, you must be the legal owner of the premise. You need to bring a copy of Land Title/ sales and purchase agreement and your identity card to the office at SWB Counters at UTC, Sibu Central Market pay the collateral deposit and sign an agreement with Sibu Water Board.

If you are requesting to change your name in your water bill under your company’s name, you will need to have a copy of Form 24 and Form 49.
