Some areas in Klang/Shah Alam also experienced water outages and low pressure on June 24 due to the temporary closure of the Sungai Selangor Phase 1 managed by the Syarikat Pengeluar Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (SPLASH).
This was due to the interruption of electricity supply from 4am to 6am the same day at the water treatment plant. This resulted in the reduction of treated water from the plant. The water supply to the affected areas are still not fully recovered.
Several areas in Gombak, Kuala Lumpur and Petaling experienced water outages and low pressure from June 25 due to the reduced treated water production from Sungai Selangor Phase 3. which was due to the rapid drop in the level of flow Sungai Selangor raw water.
“The water cut is inevitable as there is no alternative water sources that could be channelled to the affected areas,” the statement said.
Syabas predicted that the water issue will continue for a long time and the rehabilitation of water supply depended on the water level at the treatment plants.
Consumers are advised to use water wisely and to reduce usage where possible.
Syabas will be deploying water lorries and static tanks during emergencies but the resources are limited, as such priority will be given to places such as hospitals and dialysis centres.
Consumers can call Syabas hotline at 1-800-88-5252 for more information.
