Air Selangor just announced that some areas in Klang Valley will face unscheduled water disruption starting today, 19 October
This is due to the shutting down of four water treatment plants as pollution had been detected in the Selangor River
It was only last night when Air Selangor announced that water supply in certain areas had been recovered following a burst pipe issue
Around 9am on 18 October, the company announced that the Sungai Selangor Water Treatment Plant Phase 1 saw a pipe burst which led to a partial halt in operations.
However, around 9.52pm, 63% of water supply in Petaling, Gombak, Klang/Shah Alam, Kuala Lumpur, and Hulu Selangor had been recovered.
Today, Air Selangor explained that they will not be able to restore water supply in the affected areas as initially scheduled
They wrote, "Air Selangor would like to inform that as of 2am, the incident regarding the partial halt in operations the Sungai Selangor Water Treatment Plant Phase 1 had reached 80% recovery. However, since the pollution incident involves the same water treatment plant, the restoration of this area cannot be carried out according to the schedule that was announced on 18 October."
The company also assured that they have mobilised water tankers to affected areas, with priority given to critical premises such as hospitals and dialysis centres.
Users who require water supply for emergencies may contact Air Selangor by phone at 15300.
