SEBATAN DRAINAGE SCHEME ( FORMALY KNOWN AS SEBATAN II )
Status of Project Scheme Operation & Maintenance ( O & M )
Project Period August 1993 - October 1994 (approximately 14 months )
Project Life 25 years (approximately)
Project Area
The scheme is located to the North of Batang Krian,    near Saratok Town.  The site is at the confluence of Sg. Sebetan and Batang Krian is drained principally by Sg. Sebetan and Sg. Anak.  It covers a total area of about 458 hectare.  The scheme is divided into two (2) compartments i.e. Compartment A along the left side up stream of Sg. Sebatan and Compartment B on the right side of Sg. Sebetan. Compartment B of Sebetan Drainage Scheme can be accessible by road, while Compartment A can only be accessed by boat.

The initial construction cost of the scheme was  recorded at RM 1,687,000.00
Annual O & M Cost
On the average, the cost to operate and maintain the scheme annually is recorded at around RM 89,642.00.
Project Objectives

The main objective of the scheme is to drain out excess water in the scheme areas and hold back salt water inundation which is harmful to crops.  This will enable the people to continue with agriculture activities and obtain a steady and better income.

LUBOK NIBONG CONTROLLED DRAINAGE SCHEME
Status of Project Scheme Operation & Maintenance ( O & M )
Project Period The scheme was originally constructed in early 1970’s and completed in 1972with the initial cost of RM120,000.00.  The initial construction involved construction of perimeter bund, one number of 5’ x 5’ TCG, and one unit of single door barrack for the OIC.
The scheme was rehabilitated in 1982.  The infrastructures implemented were: one number of 5’ x 5’ TCG to replace the old one, three numbers of 10’ x 34’ timber crossing, one number of 3-door barrack and four numbers of control drop for more proper water management in the scheme.
Project Life 30 years
Project Area
The scheme is situated alongside Krian River about 14.50 km downstream of Saratok Town.  Formally, it is only accessible by river and it takes about two hours ride from Saratok Town.  The construction of Pusa-Sessang road make it accessible by road in the middle of the year 2007.  This scheme falls within the jurisdiction of Kabong sub district in Betong Division.  The scheme covers an area of about 231 hectares and consisting of sub-block namely Block 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 ( refer to layout plan).

Project Objectives
( a ) The implementation of the scheme is to provide modern and proper drainage and irrigation infrastructures to alleviate agricultural constraint in the project.
( b ) Provision of adequate infrastructural facilities to overcome salty water intrusion and discharging of excessive water through tidal gate.
( c ) Better land utilization in the project area is the result of proper implementation of drainage infrastructure.  This has allowed participants successfully to have rice and off season crop cultivation. Increasing yield for padi, thus income and social well being of the farmers also increase.  This has help to eradicate rural poverty rate which is in line with the New Economic Policy.

KALI KABA CONTROLLED DRAINAGE SCHEME
Status of Project Scheme Operation & Maintenance ( O & M )
Project Period The scheme was originally constructed in 1983 and rehabilitation work i.e. conversion of Block A & B for trees/perennial area completed in 1989.
Project Life 30 years
Project Area
The scheme is located on the left bank of Sg. Krian in the Kalaka District.  It is accessible by Pusa-Sessang Road since year 2005.  It is the midway between Pusa and Sessang sub districts.  In the past, before the road is available, river transport is the only means of communication.  It took an hour ride from Saratok to reach the scheme.  It consists of three blocks i.e. Block A, B & C with an area of 789 hectare.

Project Objectives
Agricultural Aspect and Social Aspect:
i)    To overcome the constraint which impede agricultural activities in the project.
ii)     Its establishment contributes towards the socio-economic development of the project area so as to increase the income of the farmers, increase productivity and improve the living standard in the project.
iii)    The provision of drainage facilities and engineering infrastructures to support modern agronomic practices
iv)    Create optimum crop, water and soil environment to support farm production in the project.
v)     Existing infrastructures such as Tidal Control Gates and Perimeter Bund have overcome the problem of salty water intrusion and discharging of excess water.
vi)     The implementation of DID project has resulted the farmers in the area not only to be self sufficient in rice but to sell the excess of rice to increase their income.
vii)    The cultivation of perennial crops such as coconut has also created regular and sustainable source of income.  These are in line with the government’s New Economic Policy.

TG. SEBEKUT CONTROLLED DRAINAGE SCHEME
Status of Project Scheme Operation & Maintenance ( O & M )
Project Period The scheme was originally constructed and completed in 1979 and rehabilitated in 1990 and as well in 2007.
Project Life 30 years
Project Area
The scheme is located at a tanjung or peninsula bounded to the East by Sg. Paku adng to the South by Batang Layar as per copy of the plan attached herewith. It covers a total area of about 300 hectares.
Spaoh town which is located right on the opposite bank of Sg. Paku is the nearest township to the scheme. Administrative wise, the scheme falls within the jurisdiction of Spaoh Sub-District in the Betong Division.
Presently, the scheme is not accessible by road. Farmers who wish to get to their farms other than on foot would have to resort to their motorbikes via two suspension bridges at Jalan Kubu and Kpg Hilir, both linking Spaoh town while those from Rh. Bebuling Atas and Baroh, Rh. Luban Ili and Ulu would have to walk on foot.

Project Objectives
The main objective of the scheme is to provide the proper drainage and irrigation infrastructures to the area which would subsequently increase the area of cultivation. With the proper and efficient up-to-date method of farm management, the farmers would not only benefit in self-sufficiency in rice but also to sustain cash income from the sale of excess padi and off-season crops. This is very much inline with the National Economic Policy to eradicate or reduce incidences of poverty in the rural areas as well as the National Agriculture Policy of maximizing income from agriculture through efficient utilization of existing resources.
