KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A total of 120 areas in Gombak and 57 other areas around Kuala Lumpur involving 119,630 registered customer accounts will experience temporary water supply disruption for 23 hours, beginning Thursday (Oct 31).

According to a statement from Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) Tuesday (Oct 29), this is due to emergency maintenance work to replace the sluice valve at the Kepong Estate Water Pool, which is suffering a serious leak.
