PAP Town Councils to enhance security measures on water tank access

SINGAPORE: The PAP Town Councils said they will further enhance the current security measures on access to the water tanks of HDB blocks. In a statement, the Coordinating Chairman, Dr Teo Ho Pin said they would allow only authorised Town Council staff and the Emergency Unit to have access to the water tanks. This after the body of an Indonesian maid was found floating in a water tank at Block 686B Woodlands Drive 73 earlier this week. A Bangladeshi cleaner was charged with her murder Wednesday. Dr Teo says there's currently two levels of security control in place for access to the water tanks. He said the water tanks at the roof top are secured with locks. In addition, access to roof top is also secured with lockable door. The issue of the keys is restricted to authorised personnel for maintenance and emergency work.
