KLANG: Selangor Mentri Besar Amirudin Shari visited the site of the three main pipe bursts near the Banting-Taiping West Coast Expressway (WCE) construction project Tuesday (May 7) evening.

During his visit, Air Selangor Sdn Bhd director and head of operations Abas Abdullah briefed him on the incident and the current status of repair works on site.

Amirudin said the water supply interruption was unscheduled and unexpected, involving three main pipes that channelled water to several areas in Klang.

He also said repair works to one of the pipes was almost completed as announced but land movement caused a delay in the repair works on Monday (May 6) night that required additional time to complete.

At a press conference during his visit, the Mentri Besar said repair works for all pipes was completed and water supply will be restored in stages within 24 hours after supply resumption.

Meanwhile, in a statement, Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) said Air Selangor will continue to mobilise water tankers to affected areas until water supply is fully restored, adding that local service centres and public taps were still activated to assist affected customers.

"We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers and would like to express our sincere appreciation to all parties for their cooperation and patience throughout the supply interruption and restoration period," the statement read.

Syabas added that consumers could visit www.syabas.com.my or Air Selangor's Facebook and Twitter accounts to find out more.

Customers can also use the “Air Selangor” smartphone app, which can be downloaded on Google Play and the Apple App Store for the latest water supply information.
