Partial shutdown: The water disruption on Tuesday was to accommodate maintenance work at the Sungai Selangor Phase 2 Water Treatment Plant.
WATER supply to two districts in the Klang Valley was restored after a partial shutdown of the Selangor River Phase 2 water treatment plant (SSP2) for maintenance.
Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) corporate communications and public affairs assistant general manager Priscilla Alfred said supply in Kuala Lumpur and Gombak was back to normal yesterday.
“We have not had any requests for static tanks or tanker lorries to be sent out,” she said.
The scheduled 13-hour maintenance work began on Tuesday at 8am, and water supply will be restored in stages until Sunday.
Alfred said all major reservoirs in four districts were back to normal levels.
“Water supply in the Klang/Shah Alam district is at 93%, while Petaling District is at 95%.”
Currently, the only part still affected by the disruption is the Bukit Naga area in Klang.
The water concessionaire will be monitoring the situation over the next 24 hours.
“On the whole, the recovery process has been faster than we expected and more areas should return to normal soon,” said Alfred.
The areas that are still affected are Bandar Baru Seri Petaling, Desa Petaling, Jalan Kuchai Lama, Old Klang Road, Kuchai Entrepreneur Park, Taman OUG, Jalan Petaling, Jalan Sungai Besi, Kawasan Perin-dustrian Puchong Batu 7, PJ Section 18, Bukit Indah, Taman Desa, Taman Gembira, Taman Kuchai Jaya, United Garden, Taman Goodwood, Taman Salak Selatan, Taman Sungai Besi, Taman Seri Sentosa, Taman Tan Yew Lai, Bandar Tasik Selatan, the Sungai Besi area, Taman Yarl, Bukit Jalil area, Taman Naga Mas and Taman Salak Jaya.
