PETALING JAYA: Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) has activated its emergency response plan following spillage of diesel 10km away from the intake area.
Districts affected are Petaling, Kuala Lumpur, Klang/Shah Alam, Gombak, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor.
Syabas, which has deemed the situation a Code Red, is appealing to consumers to prudently use water prudently drawing from existing storage, as the duration of disruption cannot yet be ascertained.
Corporate Communication and Public Affairs department deputy general manager Priscilla Alfred said they have yet to determine the cause of spillage.
“We are still awaiting investigation reports.
“However, LUAS (Lembaga Urus Air Selangor) has initiated a cleaning up exercise,” she said.
