KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Water supply in 998 areas in Petaling, Klang/Shah Alam, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor has been restored by 68% as of noon Friday (Oct 15).
Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) corporate communication head Elina Baseri, in a statement, said water supply in Hulu Selangor has been fully restored, while in Kuala Selangor, it was 99.4% and 94.2% in Shah Alam.
In Petaling, it was 89.8%, Kuala Langat (85.7%), Kuala Lumpur (38.6%) and Klang (16.8%).
"The duration of water supply disruption and restoration in the affected areas will vary depending on the location of the consumer's premises and the water pressure on the water supply distribution system.
"Air Selangor continues to mobilise alternative water supply assistance via tanker trucks to critical premises such as hospitals, dialysis centres, Covid-19 Quarantine and Treatment Centres (PKRC) and vaccination centres (PPV), as well as for use at funeral ceremonies,” she said.
Water supply was disrupted in the affected areas due to work to improve and maintain critical assets at the Sungai Selangor Water Treatment Plant Phase 1 (LRA SSP1) on Oct 13.
She advised consumers to let the taps flow for a while until the water turns clear before using the water, and to use it prudently to ensure the recovery process in the affected areas runs smoothly as scheduled.
The status of water supply restoration will be updated from time to time through Air Selangor's official communication channels including its website www.airselangor.com, Air Selangor application, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
