Water supply resumed in 9% of affected areas, says Air Selangor

PETALING JAYA: Water supply in five areas, or 9% of the 58 areas in parts of Kuala Lumpur and Gombak affected by the scheduled disruption has been fully restored as of 3pm on Wednesday (April 7).

Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) said the areas are Kementah, Pulapol, Taman Dato Ahmad Razali, Taman Putra Sulaiman and Section 4 Wangsa Maju.

It added that the disruption duration would differ according to the distance of consumers' premises to the supply distribution system and its water pressure.

"Air Selangor would like to advise consumers who have received their supply to allow the water to flow out of the tap until it is clear before using it.

"We hope that consumers will use water prudently to allow supply recovery in other affected areas to run as scheduled," it said in a statement on Wednesday (April 7).

Air Selangor advised consumers to get their regular updates from its website www.airselangor.com, apps and social media pages.

Consumers can also call its contact centre at 15300.

The water concessionaire announced on March 24 of a planned disruption affecting 12 and 46 areas in the Gombak and Kuala Lumpur district respectively starting April 6.

The disruption, to last 68 hours from 9am to 9pm daily, was to facilitate replacement of valve for raw water from the Klang Gates dam, causing a temporary stoppage of the Bukit Nanas and Wangsa Maju water treatment plants.

"Supply is expected to resume fully on April 9 at 5am," said Air Selangor then.
