The water supply to seven areas affected by the temporary shutdown caused by an odour pollution incident at the Rantau Panjang water treatment plant (WTP) intake was 94% restored as of noon today.
Air Selangor spokesman Elina Baseri said water supply had been fully restored in Petaling, Gombak, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Langat and 83 and 99% respectively in Klang and Shah Alam as well as Kuala Selangor.
Water supply has yet to fully return in Bukit Kerayong, Kuala Selangor, and 65 areas in Klang and Shah Alam, including Kampung Bukit Cerakah, Aman Perdana, Bandar Baru Bukit Raja, Taman Sri Andalas, Seksyen 25 and Taman Batu Tiga (Taman Mutiara Subang).
"The duration of the water supply recovery in the affected areas will vary, depending on the location and distance of the consumers’ premises.
"Water supply in the affected areas is expected to be fully restored by 6am tomorrow (Feb 14)," she said in a statement.
Consumers are advised to allow their taps to run for a while for the water to turn clear before use, Elina added.
She also urged consumers to use water prudently to ensure the recovery process in other affected areas runs smoothly as scheduled.
The Rantau Panjang Water Treatment Plant (Rantau Panjang WTP), Sungai Selangor Phase 1 Water Treatment Plant (SSP1 WTP), Sungai Selangor Phase 2 Water Treatment Plant (SSP2 WTP) and Sungai Selangor Phase 3 Water Treatment Plant (SSP3 WTP) were shut down on Saturday night due to odour pollution.
All four treatment plants were fully operational the next morning.
