SEREMBAN: The water supply to parts of the city and Port Dickson will be disrupted for 24 hours following the temporary closure of the Sg Linggi treatment plant.

State water concessionaire Syarikat Air Negri Sembilan (Sains) said the plant had to be closed due to odour pollution at Sungai Linggi.

A Sains spokesman said that the supply would be restored in stages.

The affected areas in Seremban include Taman Pinggiran Senawang, Ladang Batu 11, Hentian R&R Senawang, Senawang Perdana, Rantau and surrounding areas.

Areas affected in Port Dickson include PD Perdana, Jalan Pantai, Petron and Hengyuan refineries, PD Water Front, Port Dickson town, Lukut, Bandar Springhill, Bandar Sunggala, Air Kuning, Tampin Linggi, PD Utama, Tg Gemok, Tmn Pantai Mas, Bandar Dataran Segar, Simpang Siliau, Bukit Palong Industrial Area, Taman D'Pinggiran Kota, Jimah Lama, Kg Cina Site C, Tanah Merah, Bukit Pelandok and Chuah.

She reminded consumers that it was advisable to store water in a reserve tank.

"This is important as the stored water can be used during unexpected situations like this," she said, adding that it was a requirement under the Water Services Industry Act 2006 for consumers to have a reserve tank which could store enough water for 24 hours.
