Water supply to 1,279 areas in the Klang Valley affected by an unscheduled disruption since 6pm yesterday is expected to be restored in stages from 3pm today.

Air Selangor in a statement today said that operations at the Rantau Panjang and Sungai Selangor Phase (SSP) 1, 2 and 3 water treatment plants had resumed in stages since 2.40am, after readings of 0 TON or threshold odour number were recorded three times in a row.

As of 7am, all four plants had completed cleaning and pumping activities at every stage of the treatment process to ensure the quality of water is clean and safe according to the standards set by the health ministry.

“Air Selangor carried out water quality checks at every stage of the treatment process, and the National Water Services Commission has verified that there is no odour present,” Air Selangor added.

Air Selangor is currently in the process of stabilising the distribution system before the water can be channelled to consumers. A schedule of supply restoration will be released soon.

Alternative water supply assistance including 111 water tankers, 14 public taps and 17 local service centres as well as as the distribution of drinking water will continue to be provided.

Yesterday, Air Selangor announced that operations at the water treatment plants had to be suspended due to pollution of raw water resources.
