2.2 million residents to be affected by second phase of water rationing exercise

CYBERJAYA: Six districts, involving 431,617 households and 2.2 million residents in Putrajaya, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, will be faced with water cuts between Mar 2 and Mar 31.

The National Water Services Commission (SPAN) announced that these areas will receive two days of water supply, followed by two days of dry taps throughout the period.

The announcement on the second phase of the water rationing exercise was made by SPAN chairman Datuk Ismail Kassim during a press conference here on Friday.

The rationing follows the reduction in the amount of water released from the Selangor and Klang Gate dams due to the low level of water reserve.

The six districts involved are Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang/Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor and Hulu Selangor.

These districts will be divided into two zones, with each zone taking turns to receive water supply for two days.

The full list is available here.
