PETALING JAYA: Water supply in Kuala Selangor and Hulu Selangor had been fully restored with the remaining regions will have taps running soon.

Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) confirmed that the restoration of water supply in the seven affected areas in Selangor has reached 86% as of 6am on Sunday (July 21).

In a statement, Syabas said Gombak's water supply is expected to be fully restored by Monday (July 22) and Kuala Lumpur by Tuesday (July 23).

Water supply in Petaling, Klang and Shah Alam, and Kuala Langat is expected to be fully restored by Wednesday (July 24).

A total of 1,133 areas in the Klang Valley involving 1,166,842 customer accounts 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.
