Water cut may disrupt celebration


PETALING JAYA: For mother-of-two Wendy Chan (pic), she is keeping her fingers crossed that the water cut due to odour pollution in Sungai Semenyih would not dampen the Winter Solstice Festival (Dong Zhi) celebration.

“This is the time when we make the colourful tang yuan balls and cook up a feast,” she said.

“The older generation used to say that we are supposed to celebrate Winter Solstice Festival on a scale that is grander than Chinese New Year,” said Chan, 60.

She hoped the authorities would race against time to resolve the problem following the closure of the Sungai Semenyih water treatment plant.

Air Selangor said 328,957 account holders in Petaling, Hulu Langat, Kuala Langat and Sepang were affected by the water supply cut.

In a statement at 7pm yesterday, it noted that several areas in Putrajaya were also facing disruption.
