KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The water supply has been restored to 417 locations or 32.28 per cent of the 1,292 areas affected by the unscheduled water cuts in seven districts in the Klang Valley as of 6.30am on Sunday (Sept 6).

Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) Corporate Communications chief Elina Baseri said that the water supply was still being restored to the remaining 875 areas.

She said of the seven districts, only Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Langat were still at a zero recovery rate.

Hulu Selangor has recorded the highest recovery rate at 94.12 percent, followed by Kuala Selangor (91.7 percent); Petaling (37.17 per cent); Gombak (11.31 percent) and Klang/Shah Alam (7.91 percent).

"Efforts are being intensified to stabilise the water supply distribution system to enable the supply to be restored to areas that are still affected," she said in a statement on Sunday.

Consumers who have received their supply are urged to conserve and use water sparingly so that the recovery process for areas still affected could proceed smoothly according to the recovery plan schedule.

Air Selangor has also provided public taps and a One-Stop Service Centre for consumers to get a clean water supply, she added. - Bernama
