SHAH ALAM: Consumers in 577 areas affected by the unscheduled water disruption in Klang Valley will see the supply restored by today, says Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor).

Its chief executive officer Suhaimi Kamaralzaman said water treatment operations at the Sungai Selangor Phase 1, 2, 3 and Rantau Panjang water treatment plants would channel water into the main pipes to supply the 577 areas through a gradual process.

He said from the total 1,292 areas affected, 715 areas or 55% had seen water supply restored gradually.

The treatment plants were forced to shut down due to water contamination at Sungai Selangor, causing unscheduled water cuts to 1,196,457 accounts in the state.

The contamination was detected around 2am on Monday and affected areas in Petaling, Gombak, Klang, Shah Alam, Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Selangor, Kuala Langat and Hulu Selangor.

Yesterday, Suhaimi said water supply resumed in 214 areas in Petaling, 14 in Klang, 142 in Gombak, 72 in Kuala Lumpur, 15 in Hulu Selangor and 258 in Kuala Selangor. He also said water tankers had been mobilised to critical premises such as hospitals and dialysis centres.

“People can get water supply from 21 public taps and 34 static tanks at 17 local service centres made available for consumers affected by the water cut,” he said.

Air Selangor will give updates on the water supply restoration from time to time through all its official communication channels –Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, its smartphone application and Air Selangor website www.airselangor.com.
