HISTORY

Sabah State Water Department was established in 1962 as a Hydraulic Division in the Sabah State Public Works Department (PWD). Under the PWD administration, the PWD Director was given full responsibility to act as the State Water Authority as stated in the Sabah Water Supply Ordinance 1961.

In April 1987, the State Government decided to form a State Water Department and place it under the purview of the Ministry of Works and Communication Sabah (now known as the Ministry of Infrastructure Development).

JANS was officially formed as a full fledge department in 1st January 1988 after the amendment of the Water Supply ordinance 1961 was approved by the Sabah State Assembly Hall.

The Director of Water Department is given full authority to perform his authority, functions and responsibility as a State Water Authority under Section 2, Water Supply Ordinance 1961. The authority commenced on 1st July 1987.
