PETALING JAYA: All four water treatment plants that were shut down in Selangor earlier Tuesday (Nov 10) are still detecting pollution at their intakes.

Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) said that as at 7pm Tuesday, the pollution level at the Rantau Panjang plant intake was recorded at four TON (threshold odour number) while the level at the Sungai Selangor Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3 plants was at three TON.

“As such, all four plants are not operational for the time being, ” Air Selangor said.

The plants can only resume operations when a reading of 0 TON is recorded three consecutive times.

The shutdown has resulted in an unscheduled water disruption to consumers in 1,279 areas in the Klang Valley, with almost 1.2mil accounts affected.

Air Selangor said that information on water supply recovery in affected areas will be disseminated once all plants have resumed operations.

They have mobilised over 84 water tankers to critical premises as well as affected residential areas.

Alternative water supply can also be obtained at 17 Pusat Khidmat Setempat (PKS) provided for consumers beginning 8pm Tuesday night.

They also advised consumers to obey the regulations of the conditional movement control order (MCO) while obtaining water supply from water tankers and public water taps.

Air Selangor said they would provide updates on the unscheduled water disruption from time to time on their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts as well as their website at www.airselangor.com.

Consumers are also encouraged to download the Air Selangor mobile application on Google Play or the App Store for information on latest updates on water supply.
