Water disruption in 577 areas in Klang Valley from April 24

PETALING JAYA: There will be water disruption in the Klang Valley for up to 86 hours beginning April 24.

This is due to the shutdown of the Selangor River Phase 2 Water Treatment Plant (LRA SSP2) for upgrading works.

The districts affected are Klang, Shah Alam, Petaling, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Langat, and Kuala Selangor.

National Water Services Commission (SPAN) chairman Charles Santiago said the upgrading works carried out by Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) have to be carried out immediately to prevent any damage or failure to the electrical system to avoid unplanned water disruptions.

The upgrading works will begin from 9am to 11pm.  

"The plant's shutdown will disrupt water supply for up to 86 hours depending on the locations," Santiago said, adding that 620,835 account holders or 4.14 million consumers will be affected in 577 areas.  

He added that Air Selangor will take measures to minimise the impact of the water supply disruption.  

"Among the steps taken include providing water tankers, static tanks, public taps, water refilling stations and distributing bottled water to those affected," he said in a statement on Thursday (April 18).  

Santiago said that water supply will be restored in stages once the upgrading works is completed and the LRA SSP2 resumes operation.  

"Air Selangor expects about 50% of the affected areas will start receiving piped water supply again in 24 hours," he said.  

Santiago also advised the consumers to save up enough water during the disruption and to avoid wastage.
