The Government has plans to build a massive RM2bil pipeline linking the Pahang River area to Selangor and the Klang Valley. Part of the pipeline will pass through Karak. Ironically, however, the main complaint in this town is the constantly disrupted water supply. Much of the problem stems from an aged water treatment plant, which has been in service for over 30 years and thus is inadequate even for a town the size of Karak. Agricultural and timbering is the major business activities in this town. Tunku Abdul Rahman University College has it branch campus in this town.
