RAUB: The Pahang-Selangor Raw Water Transfer Project is 97% completed and expected to transfer 1,890 million litres of raw water to Selangor once completed said Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.

Adnan said the RM3.9bil project would be able to generate RM70mil in revenue per year to Pahang once completed in 2017.

"As of August, two of the four phases situated on the Pahang side have been completed and ready for operation but since there is a delay in the completion of the project involving Selangor, operations cannot start now.

"The raw water supply has been delayed because the Langat 2 water treatment plant in Hulu Langat has not been completed," he told reporters visiting Felda Lembah Kelau, on Wednesday.

Also present were Deputy Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water Datuk Seri Mahadzir Khalid and project manager Dr Zullkefle Nordin.

Once completed, the project which involves two water transfer tunnels stretching 44.6km, the longest and biggest in Southeast Asia and the sixth biggest in the world, would cater for the needs of the population in the Klang Valley until 2025.

When completed, the project will have the capacity to channel 1.89 billion litres of water a day from Pahang to Selangor to meet the needs of consumers in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya up to 2025.

Adnan also hoped Selangor would be able complete its side of the deal on schedule, despite the ongoing political crisis. - Bernama
