PETALING JAYA: A surge vessel system bursts at the SSP3 water treatment plant, causing a delay to the resumption of water supply to affected areas in the Klang Valley, says Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas).
In a statement, it said that repair works at the plant had completed ahead of time at around 5pm on Tuesday (March 6), and the incident occurred just as the plant was about to resume operations.
"The incident caused serious injuries to staff on site and Syarikat Pengeluar Air Sungai Selangor (Splash) has informed the National Water Services Commission (Span) and the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH)," it said.
The statement added that due to the incident, "supply restoration has been extended from the original schedule as announced in the earlier media notice".
Syabas said it would continue to send water tankers to affected areas until supply is restored.
It requested customers' cooperation and understanding over the incident and assured that measures are being taken to minimise the impact of water supply disruption.
