PETALING JAYA: Some 17,500 households in Kuala Lumpur were hit by water disruptions and will continue to face such cuts due to high demand and low supply.
The areas include Sungai Besi, Chan Sow Lin, Wisma Putra, Bellamy, Kerayong, Jalan San Peng, Taman Seputeh, Dataran F & N, Bukit Seputeh, Jalan Syed Putra, Taman Segar, Pandan Perdana, Pandan Indah, Taman Kencana, Maju Jaya, Lembah Maju, Taman Taynton View and areas around the Royal Malaysian Air Force base.
Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) corporate communications and public affairs manager Priscilla Alfred said the sudden high demand led to a reduction of water levels in ponds which get their supply from the Sungai Langat Water Treatment Plant (LRA).
“The situation is unavoidable as the LRA has been operating at an overload,” she said.
