SHAH ALAM: The water levels in seven Selangor dams are above critical level and adequate to meet the needs of users in the state.
Mentri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali (pic) said the water supply in the state was under control.
"Tasik Subang Dam recorded the highest water level at 97.51% followed by Semenyih Dam at 94.7%," he said in a statement here Thursday.
Azmin said the five other dams were Sungai Langat (94.64%), Batu (89.07%), Klang Gates (86.79%), Sungai Selangor (75.05%) and Sungai Tinggi (69.62%).
"This level is higher than over the corresponding period last year. For example on March 4, 2014, Sungai Selangor Dam recorded 44.84% compared with today's reading of 75.05%.
"We also found that water consumption per capita for users in Selangor is at a high of 235 litres daily. Users should reduce water usage to ensure continuous supply," he added. - Bernama
