KUALA LUMPUR: Rainfall in several areas over the past few days has increased the water levels in Sungai Selangor.

Syabas assistant corporate communications and public affairs general manager Priscilla Alfred said the increased levels had increased raw water at the Sungai Selangor Phase 1, 2, 3, Sungai Rasa and Rantau Panjang water treatment plants. Additional treated water was channelled to several areas involved in the Stage Three Water Rationing Plan.

“Syabas continues to control and reduce the release of water from the Sungai Selangor Dam and follow the Water Rationing Plan approved by the National Water Services Commission,” Alfred said in a statement yesterday.

Syabas said it would also continue the First Stage Water Rationing Plan implemented after the closure of the Cheras Batu 11 and Bukit Tampoi water treatment plants due to ammonia contamination.

Syabas said it was monitoring both plants which had begun operation since March 17 and 19, respectively.

The water treatment plants would continue to operate according to the quality of raw water and channel supply to areas such as Hulu Langat, Kuala Langat and Sepang.

Syabas said the Water Rationing Plan would continue indefinitely until decided otherwise by the Selangor state government. — Bernama
