Water cut or not: Confusion among consumers after Sg S'gor water treatment plants shut briefly due to pollution

PETALING JAYA: There is confusion among consumers whether the latest raw water pollution incident at Sungai Selangor would affect their water supply or not.

In its latest update on its social media accounts, Air Selangor said four water treatment plants along Sungai Selangor are back in operation Tuesday (Dec 8) morning after being shut down earlier due to pollution.

However, it did not give an indication as to how this would affect water supply of households in the Klang Valley.

“The treatment plants are operating. We are doing our best to stabilise the distribution system.

“Please refer to the information which would be updated from time to time on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, the AirSelangor app and our website, ” it said in reply to an enquiry by a Twitter user as to whether the water supply was disrupted.

Earlier, Air Selangor said the Rantau Panjang water treatment plant stopped operations at 11.30pm Monday (Dec 7) while Phases 1,2 and 3 of the Sungai Selangor water treatment plants had to stop at 1am Tuesday.

In its earlier notice, Air Selangor also said the halt in the operations caused unscheduled water cuts in 1,274 areas in Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat.

In a later Facebook post Tuesday morning, Air Selangor said the Rantau Panjang water treatment plant had started operating at 3.30am, while Phases 1,2 and 3 of the Sungai Selangor water treatment plant were back in action at 5am Tuesday after recording three consecutive readings of 0 TON (Threshold Odour Number).

"The water treatment plants were closed following raw water pollution detected in Sungai Selangor, ” Air Selangor had said.
