Water supply to 1,156 areas or 89.47% of the 1,292 locations affected by unscheduled water cuts in the Klang Valley was fully restored as of 6.30am today.

Air Selangor said the remaining 136 areas were still in the recovery process.

It said Petaling recorded 95.72% restoration followed by Gombak (94.89%), Kuala Lumpur (85.02%) and Klang/Shah Alam (59.32%), while water was fully restored in Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor.

“Eight areas have not achieved full recovery although they are listed in areas (Petaling, Klang/Shah Alam, Gombak and Kuala Lumpur) which should have fully recovered by midnight, Sept 7. Another 54 affected areas still have not received supply, which should be restored at midnight, Sept 8.

“Consumers are advised not to store or use water excessively to ensure that the recovery process in areas still affected by disruptions can proceed smoothly according to the restoration plan of Air Selangor,” it said in a statement today.

It also said it was trying to stabilise the distribution system to restore supply to the affected areas.

Water supply in the Klang Valley has been disrupted since Thursday after the Sungai Selangor Phases 1, 2 and 3 and Rantau Panjang water treatment plants were shut down due to pollution in the raw water source.
