Representatives from BEST Society were greeted by Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Kampung (JKKK), Munin B. Jun and a few other members of the community. The water tanks sponsored by ConocoPhillips in collaboration with BEST Society and Borneo Eco Tours have completed its final phase (6th phase) with Kg. Porupok Nibang being the last recipient after distributing 100 water tanks in the past 4 years to five villages: Kg. Lugu, Kg. Pandan, Kg. Mandamai, Kg. Kobon and Kg. Tutuwon. The 5th phase of Bengkoka Living Water had a difference to it whereby it focused on gravity water system.  With the distribution of water tanks for storage of rain- water, it is hoped that this will ease their burden during drought season.
