PETALING JAYA: The water disruption caused by a burst main pipe in Kota Damansara is expected to end Monday morning, with water returning to affected areas in stages from midnight tonight.
Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) said repair work on the damage, which occurred Saturday morning, were due to be completed by 4pm Sunday.
“After repairs on the pipe are completed, water (supply) will return in stages from midnight,” said Syabas corporate communications and public affairs assistant general manager Priscilla Alfred.
She added that following repairs, it would take a few hours for water to flow through taps again as there was no pressure in the pipes.
The Star previously reported that several areas in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur would experience water disruptions due to the burst pipe.
Affected areas include Section 11, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, SS1, SS2, SS3, SS4, SS5, SS6, SS7, SS8 Free Trade Zone, SS9, SS9A, Sg Penchala, Kg Kayu Ara, Universiti Malaya and Setiapuspa.
The damage to the 900mm pipe caused by sheet piling activity at a Klang Valley MRT construction site, had resulted in flooding and traffic jams in the area on Saturday.
Priscilla said the burst pipe was a main pipeline leading from the nearby Effingham reservoir, which connects to smaller communication pipes in KL and PJ.
