PETALING JAYA: Parts of Klang Valley have been hit with unscheduled water cuts after a water treatment plant was shut down due to pollution on Saturday (Dec 21).

In a notification on their official app, Air Selangor said pollution of raw water caused the Sg Semenyih treatment plant to be shut down at 10am.

It said that several areas would be affected by unscheduled water disruptions in stages.

"A timeframe on when the water treatment plant would be operational again has not been established at this time. It will depend on the level of contamination," it said.

Air Selangor also said that updates will be issued from time to time and action taken to ease the impact of the water cuts. It advised consumers to download the Air Selangor app or visit www.airselangor.com for more information and updates.

On Facebook, Lembaga Urus Air Selangor (Luas) said the plant was shut down at 7.15am on Saturday after a solvent-like odour was detected.

"Luas, Air Selangor, and other relevant agencies are carrying out investigations to identify the source of pollution and implement immediate measures to check it," it said.
