CYBERJAYA: More than 6.7 million Selangor residents will face water cuts, when the fourth phase of water rationing takes effect on April 4.
National Water Services Commission (SPAN) chairman Datuk Ismail Kassim said that the phase will affect nine districts here: Gombak, Petaling, Klang/Shah Alan, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Langat, Hulu Langat and Sepang.
“The fourth phase of water rationing will involve an additional 620,237 households making a grand total of 1,340,231 households or 6.7 million people,” he told reporters at SPAN’s headquarters here on Tuesday.
The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), he said, will however not be affected by the water rationing exercise.
Ismail added that households affected by the fourth phase will be subject to a two-days on, two-days off water supply pattern.
The Sungai Selangor Dam, he added, will now only release 1 billion litres a day, as opposed to 1.6 to 1.8 billion litres previously.
Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) executive director (planning division) Sanusi Suleiman said that 1.15 million accounts in Selangor would be affected by the rationing.
These, he said, included commercial and industrial accounts, adding that there were a total of 1.8 million accounts in Selangor.
