KLANG: Pond water being pumped into Sungai Selangor is safe for consumption after being treated, and if the momentum continues, rationing will end next week, Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said Friday.
"Water from some of these ponds is cleaner than river water as the ponds are very old, some of them have been there for 30 years," Khalid told a press conference after a meeting-the-people session at Dewan Sri Hamzah here.
He added the pond water would be treated and tested again to ensure it was safe for consumption.
He added that the water situation was improving and if the momentum continued, consumers would no longer have to put up with water rationing from next week.
"We don't have to continue with water rationing by next week if the current conditions continue," he said.
Khalid also said the restructuring of the state's water industry was going on as planned.
