Water supply has been restored to 93 percent of the areas affected by the water cut due to upgrading works at the Phase 2 of the Sungai Selangor water treatment plant.
In a statement today, Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) said three areas - Gombak, Kuala Selangor and Kuala Langat - have achieved 100 percent restoration while Kuala Lumpur has an 89 percent rate, Petaling (98 percent) and Klang/Shah Alam (91 percent).
“All areas listed and scheduled to have their supply fully restored by 11am today have had their taps running since 6am today,” said Abdul Raof Ahmad, Syabas head of management communication and customer relations department.
“Water tankers have been mobilised to areas still without water supply and all actions have been taken to stabilise the pressure and restoration, especially in areas and premises located on high ground and those at the end of the distribution system,” he said.
Syabas thanked all quarters involved in the efforts to restore supply, especially consumers, for their cooperation, and apologised for any inconvenience caused by the disruption of water supply.
The shutdown of the treatment plant on Wednesday is expected to disrupt water supply for up to 86 hours, affecting 620,835 accounts or 4,143,465 users in 577 areas in Shah Alam, Klang, Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Gombak, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor.
