RESIDENTS at Gasing Indah flats in Bukit Gasing, Petaling Jaya, received five-litre bottles of drinking water through an initiative by Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd.

The contribution was made to help those affected by the water supply disruption last week.

Air Selangor distributed a total of 3,024 bottles to affected residents in Selangor.

All four water treatment plants — Sungai Selangor Phase 1,2, 3 and Rantau Panjang — had resumed operations with water supply fully restored by Nov 13.

Its chief executive officer Suhaimi Kamaralzaman said the water treatment plants were allowed to resume operations after recording zero TON (threshold odour number) three times in a row.

Bukit Gasing assemblyman Rajiv Rishyakaran who was present, said those found to have caused the pollution by dumping effluent into the Indah Water Konsortium manhole should be punished.

“They caused millions of people in Selangor to suffer water cuts, which happens way too often. “There should be enforcement by the authorities every week, not one week after the pollution was detected, ” he added.

The unscheduled water cut affected more than one million households in 1,279 areas spread across Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat districts. — By AIDA AHMAD
