PETALING JAYA: Leaky, ageing pipes are taking a huge toll on the country, with close to two trillion litres of treated water lost to seepage, poor water quality and frequent disruptions at the consumer end.

And it’s going to get worse. Much of the problem lies in the 43,890km of ageing pipes around the country.
