What a waste: Syabas workers trying to resolve the burst pipe situation along Jalan Universiti, Petaling Jaya.
PETALING JAYA: A burst pipe along Jalan Universiti yesterday afternoon not only caused traffic delays but sparked public anger over the amount of water being wasted.
A comment on the photo of this event uploaded on StarOnline by @dytia_aurinh sums up the feelings of most people:
“Dahlah air kena catu – pipe burst lagi what the hell” (Water is already being rationed and now a pipe bursts!).
Workers from Syabas, the company in charge of water distribution, were seen managing traffic at around 4pm.
According to an eyewitness, water was gushing out from the middle of the road and there had been no road works or any construction activity nearby.
Syabas put up a notice on their Twitter and Facebook accounts about the issue at around 5pm, saying that the incident would cause an unscheduled water disruption along Jalan Universiti properties, though they expect supply to resume in stages by midnight the same day.
Efforts to contact Syabas were unsuccessful.
