Syabas carries out water rationing in KL

WATER concessionaire Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) has activated its Emergency Response Plan (ERP) Code Green in Kuala Lumpur.

It announced that the move was in response to low water levels in its primary ponds and increased demand which the Sungai Langat treatment plant was unable to keep up with.

The ERP Code Green enables Syabas to monitor and manage areas affected by water supply disruption.

Six supply tankers have been moved to the affected areas to assist in dispensing water.

The concessionaire will continue sending water supplies periodically while continuing to monitor the primary retention ponds.

The Sungai Langat treatment plant currently supplies the affected areas with an output of 466mil litres per day (mld).

The concessionaire said based on its records from March 1 to 11, the latest output levels were 497.75mld at Sungai Langat, showing an overload capacity of 28.76%.

Currently, Syabas is working to redirect some water supplies from other sources in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.

Complaints can also be made on Syabas’ Facebook or Twitter pages.
