PETALING JAYA: Water supply has been restored to most areas which experienced disruption due to maintenance works done by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), says Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas).
In a statement, the water concessionaire said that as at 7am Thursday, supply to all areas within Zone 1 had been completely restored, while Zone 2 was 99.5% restored, with only Klang still experiencing supply disruption.
"All efforts are being made to ensure water supply is restored in Kg Rantau Panjang and Taman Cempaka Sari in Klang.
"For these two areas we expect for a full restoration by this (Thursday) evening," it said.
Syabas said it would continue to oversee the water supply status to ensure the quantity and pressure were at optimum levels.

Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said Air Selangor had succeeded in restoring water supply to all affected areas in the state and Kuala Lumpur in just three days, half the initial expected time frame of six days.
"My gratitude to Air Selangor staff who worked hard to ensure the speedy restoration of water supply to affected areas," he said in a statement on Thursday.
Azmin added that the Selangor state government prioritised the comfort of water users, especially during the festive season and school holidays.
He wished those celebrating the season a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Winter's solstice, and added that the state government would keep monitoring the situation to ensure sufficient clean water supplies for consumers in the Klang Valley.
Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley area were subject to water shortages since Dec 19 due to a preventive maintenance at the Main Inteake Substations (PMU) belonging to TNB.
TNB had explained that the water cut was necessary as the Bukit Badong substations supplied electricity to the Sungai Selangor water treatment plants.
The initial disruption was supposed to take place until Dec 24, which led to a huge backlash from the rakyat who condemned scheduling of the disruption during the festive season.
