Air Selangor says it was "highly commended" at the Global Water Awards 2020 in the Public Water Agency of the Year category
"This prestigious award is a recognition of our excellent achievement in delivering clean and safe treated water to our consumers in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, and Putrajaya," read the statement by Air Selangor.
The winner of the category was Saudi Arabia's water agency
The award, called Public Water Agency of the Year was won by National Water Company of Saudi Arabia, with distinction given to Gujarat Water Infrastructure, Ltd in India.
Netizens, however, have raised questions about Air Selangor's frequent water cuts
"Hi, Air Selangor, Congrats on your achievement. By the way, can you come out with 2021 Water Cut Calendar so we can prepare accordingly? Thanks," read a top comment posted under the Air Selangor statement.
Air Selangor's recognition for clean and safe water delivery comes amidst yet another water cut that affected seven regions in the Klang Valley and Selangor, which experienced water supply disruption
The water supply disruption lasted for two days. It was restored at 3am today, 10 December.
