ABOUT 4, 200 households are still affected by an unscheduled water cut in several areas in Selangor, which started at 3pm on Wednesday.
A notice on the unscheduled water disruptions was put up on Puspel’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. However, the agency was being bombarded by comments from unhappy residents.
Adeline Fong posted that water had been cut twice this week in her home.
Although water supply was supposed to have resumed by 11am on Friday, Fong wrote that it had not: “It’s already past 1pm. What’s the problem?”
Areas affected include Taman Bukit Kinrara, Taman Puncak Kinrara, Jalan Alam Sutera Utama, Taman Impian Indah, Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT) Bukit Jalil, Subang Jaya SS17, SS18 dan SS19 as well as Bandar Kinrara.
Also experiencing disruptions were Section 14, 22 and 51A in the Petaling District, Kuala Selangor and parts of Tanjung Karang, Section 4, Kota Damansara, some areas in Hulu Langat such as Taman Vista Emas, Alam Sari, Taman Puncak Utama, as well as Jade Hill, Kajang.
khemeqgs2 wrote on Puspel’s Twitter that there hasn’t been any water in Taman Puncak Utama and Jade Hill in Kajang for two days.
“How long will it take to rectify the situation and can you send water to our homes?” he asked.
In Subang, the situation was back to normal as of 4pm on Thursday.
However, the Hungry Hog Restaurant in SS15 Subang Jaya said it was experiencing low water pressure even though supply had resumed.
“We had to use tank water after the supply was cut at 3pm on Wednesday,” restaurant manager Yeong Yeng Yee said, adding that the restaurant had to close on Thursday.
Syabas corporate communications and public affairs assistant general manager Priscilla Alfred said the water disruption was due to low water levels at the Bukit Dengkil and Subang Airport water treatment plants.
She said this was due to a third party who had tampered with the valve. Syabas lodged a police report on the matter on Thursday.
At noon on Friday, the water level in both treatment plants was reported to be stable.
