Repair work on burst pipe to be completed by noon tomorrow


The repair work on a 1,800mm main in Setia Alam is ongoing and is expected to be completed by noon tomorrow, according to Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd Customer Relations and Communications Department head Abdul Raof Ahmad.

In a statement, he said water supply would be restored as soon as the repair works are completed and supply recovery would happen in stages depending on distance and location.

Meanwhile, National Water Services Commission (Span) chief executive officer Ahmad Faizal Abdul advised consumers to use water prudently during the repair work on the major pipeline.

"We also hope that it will be resolved within 24 hours and consumers will not have any water woes for a long time," he told reporters when met where pipeline burst.

Span chairperson Charles Anthony Santiago said the cause would be identified after the repair work was completed.

Charles, who is Klang MP, said this was the second major burst pipe incident in Klang in a short period of time.

On May 5, three major pipes near the construction site of West Coast Highway in Bukit Rajah, Klang burst causing water supply disruption to thousands.
