KUALA LUMPUR: Water supply to 463 affected areas in Selangor is expected to be fully restored by 11.30pm on Friday (Dec 17).
Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd corporate communications head Elina Baseri, in a statement, said that water supply in the affected areas covering Putrajaya, Hulu Langat District, Sepang District and Kuala Langat District had reached 100% while Petaling district was at 93.6%.
“The recovery period differs from one area to another based on location and distance of the consumers’ premises.
“Alternative water supply assistance will continue to be mobilised to affected consumers and critical premises during the unscheduled water supply disruption.
“We would like to advise consumers who have received water supply to let the taps run until the water is clear before using it for consumption,” she added.
The water supply disruption followed the shutdown of Sungai Semenyih Water Treatment Plant (WTP) due to an odour pollution incident in Sungai Semenyih on Thursday (Dec 16). – Bernama
