Chairman of the National Water Services Commission (SPAN) Charles Santiago said the maintenance works began at 8 am yesterday and were completed within the time stipulated by Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) and SPAN.

The re-operations of the LRA SSP2 is expected to take 24 hours, he said.

“Water supply will resume in stages from late today (25 April), depending on the location as scheduled by Syabas,” he said in a statement here today.
