THREE areas in Petaling district are still suffering from the water disruption that began on March 6 while five other areas have had their supply fully restored.
The remaining affected areas are Taman Bukit Kuchai, Bandar Puchong Jaya, and SS12 to SS19 in Subang Jaya according to a statement released by Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas), a member of the Air Selangor group.
Air Selangor customer relations and communications head Abdul Raof Ahmad was apologetic when contacted, saying that they were trying hard to assist the affected areas.
“We are truly sorry for the inconvenience caused and we are working hard to restore the water supply as soon as possible,” he said.
He said they are currently in the midst of increasing the water pressure and flow at the service ponds and distribution lines to address the issue.
The three affected areas are the last to have their water supply restored due to their location being on higher grounds as well as their position being at the end of the distribution line.
Abdul Raof added that they are now focusing on helping the affected areas and their staff are on the ground assisting where possible.
On March 6, a large part of Selangor and Kuala Lumpur faced scheduled water cuts that were supposed to last three days to make way for repair works at the SSP3 treatment plant.
However, upon completion of the repair works on March 7, a Surge Vessel System burst, causing severe injuries to several staff members and prolonging the water cut.
