Span wants change in Air S'gor if water supply not restored on time

Modified 17 Jul 2019, 7:38 am

The National Water Services Commission (Span) will propose a change of management in Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) if the water disruption which will affect several districts in Selangor from July 23 to 26 is not restored on time.

Span chairperson Charles Santiago said the commission is taking the matter seriously, and that he hopes the water supply would be restored by 9pm on July 26 as promised.

“We (Span) are also quite troubled with the water disruption, we have discussed this and have even held meetings on this matter.

“If, by 9pm on July 26, the water supply is not restored, Span will submit a request to Selangor Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari to make management changes in Air Selangor,” he told a press conference at the Parliament lobby today.

In a statement yesterday, Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) said a total of 758 areas in Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Selangor, and Kuala Langat will be experiencing a scheduled water supply disruption between 36 and 84 hours from 9am on July 23.

It said the water disruption will affect 758,570 account holders due to improvement works on the water supply system at Sungai Selangor Phase 1 Water Treatment Plant.
