PETALING JAYA: The restoration of water supply in the seven affected areas in Selangor has reached 59%, says Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas).

As of 12pm on Saturday (July 20), Kuala Lumpur had a restoration rate of 41.1%, while Petaling was at 55.2%, Klang and Shah Alam was at 50.8%.

At the same time, Kuala Selangor has reached 96.1%, Gombak at 90.5% while Hulu Selangor's water supply has been fully restored.

Kuala Langat's water supply is still at 0%.

"We are stepping up our efforts to stabilise the flow and pressure in the distribution system and expedite the water supply restoration process to all areas," Head of Customer Relationship and Communication Department Abdul Raof Ahmad said in a statement.

He said relief water supply via tankers, local service centres and public water taps will continue to be mobilised.

"Additionally, we will distribute 18,000 units of five-litre bottled water to customers in multi-storey residences," he said, thanking customers for their patience and cooperation.

"Customers in areas that have recovered and have received their supply are required to use water sparingly and avoid wastage," he added.

A total of 1,133 areas in the Klang Valley involving 1,166,842 customer accounts in Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang/Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat were affected by the unscheduled water supply disruption on Friday (July 19).

The Sungai Selangor Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 Water Treatment Plants and the Rantau Panjang Water Treatment Plant had to be shut down due to odour pollution in the Sungai Selangor raw water source.

Investigations showed the source of the odour pollution had originated from Sungai Liam in Batang Kali, Hulu Selangor.
