KUALA LUMPUR: The Sungai Selisek Water Treatment Plant resumed operations at 2pm Friday (May 29).
“The eight areas in Hulu Selangor that were experiencing unscheduled water supply interruption will begin receiving water supply from 4pm onwards, ” said Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor).
“The water supply is expected to be fully restored at 12.30am Saturday (May 30).
“Assistance through the mobilisation of water tankers to affected areas are still ongoing until the water supply is fully restored, ” said Air Selangor head of corporate communications Elina Baseri.
It was earlier reported that the Sungai Selisik Water Treatment Plant was shut down two nights ago following pollution in the raw water source.
The pollution was due to a diesel spill during an accident involving a lorry at KM 389.5 of the North-South Highway near Behrang, Perak earlier that day.
Updates on the restoration of water supply of the affected areas will be available on Air Selangor’s social media platforms, www.airselangor.com and Air Selangor mobile app.
