Too much rain, too little water supply: Never ending water woes under Pakatan's Selangor govt

It has been raining cats and dogs in the last few days, particularly overnight from Jan 2 - 3. Despite the torrential downpour leading to massive floods, areas in Selangor reportedly faced unscheduled dry taps due to ... ironically... floods!

On Jan 3, Air Selangor reported that eight areas had been affected following the shutdown of the Sungai Selisek water treatment plant. This forcible shutdown was executed reportedly due to Sungai Selisek waters rising to a critical level at its intakes due to continuous rain.
