Taps in key parts of the Klang Valley could run dry again, after pollution was detected at the Rantau Panjang and Sungai Selangor water treatment plants today.

The Selangor Water Management Authority (LUAS) which supervises water resources in the state said the plants were shut down for 25 minutes after odour from the pollution was detected.

It said an investigation is being carried out together with Pengurusan Air Selangor, the sole water supply concessionaire.

The plants supply water to the districts of Petaling, Klang, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor.

Since September, there have been at least two major disruptions to water supply affecting millions in the Klang Valley.
