PETALING JAYA: The Sungai Semenyih water treatment plant is back in operation, says Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas).

“The plant is back in operation and we have started to channel treated water to the reservoirs in stages since 3.15am,” it said on Facebook, Saturday.

It said Syabas had mobilised water tankers, activated jumbo tanker stations and public water standpipes to help those affected while waiting for water supply to recover.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and are working to accelerate the recovery process,” it said.

The plant had ceased operations at 4.15pm on Friday when the bund at Sungai Buah in Nilai, Negri Sembilan, the source of the contamination earlier in the week, gave way following a heavy downpour upstream.

Syabas urged the public to avoid congesting its hotline and to seek updated information via its website, mysyabas app, puspel syabas or air selangor Facebook page.

The public can also request for water tankers via sms by sending: tanker to 15300
