Water cut: Some lucky residents may not experience dry taps

PETALING JAYA: Some Klang Valley residents will not experience dry taps at any point during the scheduled water disruption during the 13-hour maintenance work Tuesday at the Selangor River Phase 2 water treatment plant (SSP2) by Puncak Niaga Sdn Bhd if they live close to the reservoirs or are in low-lying areas.

“There are ‘affected’ users who may not experience any disruption at all,” Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) corporate communications and public affairs assistant general manager Priscilla Alfred said.

She also explained that water supply recovery depended on the geographical location of the affected areas.

Normal supply was also expected to resume faster for those who lived closer to the reservoirs or in low-lying areas.

She said the there was enough water in the reservoirs to be channelled to consumers for normal usage throughout the 13-hour maintenance work beginning Tuesday at the Selangor River Phase 2 water treatment plant (SSP2) by Puncak Niaga Sdn Bhd.

The partial shutdown at SSP2 from 8am to 9pm will see the replacement of switchboards at the intake, pipe repairs and sluice valve replacements, with additional workers to speed up the work.

“Water supply will be restored in stages from 9pm Tuesday until 8am on Sunday.

“Consumers in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor are advised to use water prudently,” she added.
