KUALA LUMPUR: Water supply to seven areas affected by a temporary shutdown that was caused by an odour pollution incident at the Rantau Panjang water treatment plant (WTP) intake was 94% restored as of noon Monday (Feb 13).

Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) corporate communications head Elina Baseri said water supply had been fully restored in Petaling, Gombak, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Langat, and 83% to 99% in Klang and Shah Alam as well as Kuala Selangor.

She said areas in Kuala Selangor that yet to have water supply fully restored were Bukit Kerayong and 65 areas in Klang and Shah Alam that include Kampung Bukit Cerakah, Aman Perdana, Bandar Baru Bukit Raja, Taman Sri Andalas, Seksyen 25 and Taman Batu Tiga (Taman Mutiara Subang).

"The duration of the water supply recovery in the affected areas will vary, depending on the location and distance of consumers’ premises.

"Water supply in the affected areas is expected to be fully restored by 6am tomorrow (Feb 14),” she said in a statement.

Consumers are advised to allow their taps to run for the water to turn clear before use, Elina said.

She also urged consumers to use water prudently to ensure the recovery process in the other affected areas runs smoothly as scheduled.

The odour pollution caused the Rantau Panjang Water Treatment Plant (Rantau Panjang WTP), Sungai Selangor Phase 1 Water Treatment Plant (SSP1 WTP), Sungai Selangor Phase 2 Water Treatment Plant (SSP2 WTP) and Sungai Selangor Phase 3 Water Treatment Plant (SSP3 WTP) to be shut down since Saturday (Feb 11) night.

However, all four treatment plants were fully operational the next morning. - Bernama
