DID Kenyalang members in a photocall with their Gold Award Certification received at the International Convention of Quality Control Circle (ICQCC) in Singapore.

KUCHING: The Innovative and Creative (KIK) group from the Department of Irrigation and Drainage Sarawak, DID Kenyalang was awarded the Gold Award Certification in the International Convention of Quality Control Circle (ICQCC) held in Singapore on Oct 22 – 25.

DID Kenyalang had presented their creation called ‘Intelligent Gauge’ (IG) which could monitor and provide early flash flood warning in high risk areas.

The ‘Intelligent Gauge’ siren system would be triggered when flood water reaches alert level of 0.15 metres following which DID officers would be alerted through ‘real time’ text messaging (SMS) to their mobile phones.

This would enable the DID officers to monitor and report real-time situations on the flood water. With the new system, loss of life and property damages can be avoided substantially with appropriate flood response plan.

The 40th ICQCC gathered 14 countries (Malaysia, Korea, China, Singapore, Maldives, India, Bangladesh, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Philippines, Fiji and Sri Lanka) in which more than 470 teams participated.

A total of 44 KIK teams from Malaysia participated in the competition.
