“Air Selangor is making all efforts to minimise the impact of water distribution among affected consumers,” it said in a statement.

It also advised those in affected areas to store enough water whilst waiting for the supply to fully recover.

Last Saturday (April 30), odour pollution was also detected at the Air Selangor water pump station, causing another unscheduled water disruption to some parts of the Klang Valley.

The disruption saw 463 areas in Selangor go without water for over 12 hours before being restored the next morning.
