Water supply in 998 areas in Petaling, Klang/Shah Alam, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor was restored by 68% as of noon today.
Air Selangor corporate spokesman Elina Baseri, in a statement, said water supply in Hulu Selangor had been fully restored, while in Kuala Selangor, it was at 99.4% and 94.2% in Shah Alam.
In Petaling, it was at 89.8%, Kuala Langat 85.7%, Kuala Lumpur 38.6% and Klang 16.8%.
“The duration of water supply disruption and restoration in the affected areas will vary depending on the location of the consumer’s premises and the water pressure on the water supply distribution system.
“Air Selangor continues to mobilise alternative water supply assistance via tanker trucks to critical premises such as hospitals, dialysis centres, Covid-19 quarantine and treatment centres and vaccination centres, as well as for use at funeral ceremonies,” she said.
Water supply was disrupted in the affected areas due to work to improve and maintain critical assets at the Sungai Selangor Water Treatment Plant Phase 1 on Oct 13.
Elina advised consumers to let the taps flow for while until the water turns clear before using it, and to use water prudently to ensure the recovery process in the affected area runs smoothly as scheduled.
The status of water supply restoration will be updated from time to time through Air Selangor’s official communication channels including its website www.airselangor.com, Air Selangor application, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
