Syabas: Taps running again for 77% of account holders


PETALING JAYA: Water supply has been restored to 77% of the 1.2 million account holders affected by the shutting down of four treatment plants following diesel pollution of raw water source on Sunday.

Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) said as at 6am Tuesday, supply had been restored to 94% of its customers in Gombak, followed by Kuala Selangor (90%), Kuala Lumpur (82%), Klang and Shah Alam (75%), Petaling (70%), Hulu Selangor (47%) and Kuala Langat (39%).

Syabas, a member of Air Selangor Group, had to shut down operations at Sungai Selangor Phase 1, 2 and 3, as well as the Rantau Panjang water treatment plants last week due to odour pollution and again on Sunday due to diesel pollution at raw water source.

Air Selangor Customer Relations and Communication Department head Abdul Raof Ahmad said affected customers could source for water supply at designated public taps and at one-stop service centres that were in operation round-the-clock.

Water supply is expected to be fully restored by Saturday.
