Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said 40ha of the land was in the Petaling district, followed by Klang (86ha), Gombak (32ha), Hulu Langat (33ha), Sepang (29ha), Kuala Langat (142ha), Kuala Selangor (40ha), Hulu Selangor (20ha) and Sabak Bernam (1ha).
Although most of the land was initially used for agriculture, structures such as stores and houses were built later, he said in reply to Mohd Fakhrulrazi Mohd Mokhtar (PH-Meru).
Meanwhile, state tourism, environment, green technology and Orang Asli affairs committee chairman Hee Loy Sian said the Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant (LRA) project, including the construction of a service pool and distribution system, was scheduled to be completed by Dec 31, 2023. The treatment plant would cost RM2.38bil.
“Part of the Langat 2 LRA has started operating on Dec 21, 2019, with a capacity of 565 million litres daily through Stream B.
“The clean water is supplied to Hulu Langat, Petaling and Kuala Lumpur with an average current production of 430 litres daily.
“Stream A, which has a capacity of 565 litres daily, has been commissioned and was scheduled to be handed over to Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd on Oct 30.
“However, since the pipe network for the clean water distribution is not yet completed, the full capacity of this LRA cannot be utilised,” he told Zakaria Hanafi (BN-Semenyih).
