Water supply in 973 areas or 75.31% of the 1,292 locations affected by water disruptions around the Klang Valley had been restored as of 12.30pm today.

Air Selangor said in a statement that the restoration of water in the remaining 319 areas remains ongoing.

Water supply was fully restored in Hulu Selangor, followed by Kuala Selangor (99.25%), Petaling (92.43%), Gombak (76.64%), Kuala Lumpur (52.63%), Kuala Langat (50%) and Klang/Shah Alam (38.42%).

Water supply has yet to be fully restored in 55 areas although they were listed in Group One, which was supposed to receive their water supply at midnight.

“Efforts are being taken to stabilise distribution systems to restore the water supply in these areas.

“We advise consumers not to store or use an excessive amount of water so as to ensure a smooth recovery process in other affected areas according to the Air Selangor restoration plan,” it said.

The water disruption began on Thursday when the Sungai Selangor Phase 1, 2, 3 and Rantau Panjang water treatment plants were forced to stop operations due to pollution at the raw water source.

Air Selangor also advised consumers to obtain information from its official announcements or interaction channels, and avoid spreading rumours about the water disruption.
