Cloud-seeding for rain to raise water levels

hasanSEREMBAN: Negeri Sembilan will conduct cloud seeding to raise the water level in dams and rivers in the state, said Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan.

He said the state disaster management committee had been instructed to discuss the matter and the Meterological Department had agreed to conduct cloud seeding in Jelebu, Kuala Pilah, Jempol and Tampin.

“At present, we have the right type of clouds, cumulonimbus for cloud seeding and therefore it should be done. After that I hope it rains heavily, especially in upstream areas,” he told reporters.

He also said the disaster management committee was in the process of studying proposals to have water rationing if water levels continued to fall.
