KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 7 — Water supply restoration has reached 17 per cent in Selangor with 46 out of 274 areas receiving full water supply as of 6 am today.
Air Selangor corporate communication chief Elina Baseri said water supply to the remaining 228 areas was still in the process of being restored.
“The Kuala Langat region recorded 55 per cent recovery while Petaling recorded 37 per cent, however Hulu Langat and Sepang/Putrajaya have yet to be restored.
“Consumers are advised to use water prudently to ensure the recovery process for areas which are still affected proceeds smoothly and in line with Air Selangor recovery plan’s schedule,’’ she said in a statement, today.
She said Air Selangor was actively working to stabilise the water supply distribution system at the affected areas.
A total of 309,687 account holders in Petaling, Hulu Langat, Kuala Langat and Sepang/Putrajaya had experienced unscheduled water supply disruption since Sunday following the closure of Sungai Semenyih and Bukit Tampoi water treatment plants (LRAs) due to raw water pollution.
