Water supply in Selangor being restored in stages

PETALING JAYA: Water supply to consumers in several areas in Selangor that have been hit by an unscheduled cut will resume in stages, starting from 7am on Wednesday (Sept 1).

Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) corporate communication chief Elina Baseri said water supply in all 463 affected areas is expected to fully recover at midnight on Friday (Sept 3).

“Air Selangor has conducted water quality testing and it has complied with the standards set by the Health Ministry. Treated water from Sg Semenyih water treatment plant has also been certified safe for distribution to consumers by the National Water Service Commission (SPAN).

“Currently, Air Selangor is working to stabilise the water supply distribution system to all affected areas. Water supply in all 463 affected areas is expected to fully recover at midnight on Sept 3,” she added.

On Tuesday (Aug 31), Air Selangor announced unscheduled water cuts for 463 areas in Selangor due to odour pollution, the first since the last major disruption in December.

Elina said that Air Selangor will continue to mobilise alternative water supply assistance to the affected consumers and critical premises.

“A total of 94 water tankers have been mobilised to the affected consumer areas during this unscheduled water supply disruption. Air Selangor is seeking the consumers’ cooperation to practice social distancing and wear face masks while collecting the water supply from the water tankers,” said in a statement on Wednesday (Sept 1).
