Water supply has slowly resumed in parts of Puchong and Hulu Langat but there are still few neighbourhoods that have yet to receive it after a six-day wait.

The remaining affected areas are Serdang Hospital, IOI City Mall, Seri Kembangan trade area, Seri Kembangan 1 to 13, Sri Bayu Apartment, Apartment Megaria, Bukit Serdang 3,4,5,6,7 and 8, Taman Serdang Utama, Taman Wasasan Puchong, Puchong Hartamas and Bandar Puteri Puchong. All these places are located in the Petaling district.

In Hulu Langat district, the areas that have yet to get water are Bandar Sunway Semenyih, Bandar Tasik Kesuma, Bandar Teknologi Kajang, Kajang Utama, Kg Rinching Hilir, Kampung Rinching Hulu, Kg Rinching Tengah, Taman Bangi Jaya, Taman Bukit Semenyih, Taman Desa Kenanga, Taman Vista Emas Sg.Tangkas, Taman Bukit Permai, Taman Bukit Kajang Baru, Taman Desa Mewah, Taman Dusun Jaya, Taman Hieow Piow, Taman Tropika Sg Tangkas, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Area 1 and Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Area 2.

Cyberjaya is also still waiting for the supply to resume.

Air Selangor Group corporate communications head Amin Lin Abdullah said in a statement that the recovery status of the affected areas has reached 96.7%.

“However, restoration to areas at the end of the water supply distribution system and the higher ground will require extended time. Supply is expected to be fully restored by noon on Thursday.

“Emergency relief water supplies have been delivered by water tankers to the affected areas.

“Test results of treated water from the Sg Semenyih water treatment plant complies with all the parameters set by the Health Ministry,” he said.

 Meanwhile, Kinrara assemblyman Ng Sze Han and his team were seen distributing bottled water to households in Bandar Puteri 10 Banyan and Puchong Hartamas, both located in Puchong.

“We had received complaints from those two neighbourhoods early Wednesday morning that they have no water, so we arranged for supply through water tankers and bottled water distribution.

“But when we and the tankers arrived yesterday afternoon, the water supply had resumed but the pressure was very low. Residents can store the water to tide them over until normal pressure resumes,” said Ng.

Several areas in the Petaling, Hulu Langat, Sepang and Kuala Langat districts had their water supply interrupted following the shutdown of the Sungai Semenyih Water Treatment Plant last week due to odour pollution. The plant resumed operations on Saturday afternoon.
