KUANTAN (Bernama): Floods caused the shutdown of 17 water treatment plants in seven Pahang districts, says Pengurusan Air Pahang Bhd (PAIP).
In a statement Tuesday (Jan 5), it said that 26 water treatment plants were impacted, but nine started operating at 11am today.
"The plants that are still shutdown are in Raub, Lipis, Maran, Bentong, Bera, Jerantut and Temerloh.
"It follows a rise in river levels and power cut," said PAIP.
PAIP has sent a water tanker to affected locations and to temporary flood centres, while distributing potable water.
PAIP has also received extra water tankers through the National Water Services Commission (SPAN) and operators in Johor, Negri Sembilan, Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Penang.
