Water supply to 1.2m users disrupted, to be restored in stages from noon

KUALA LUMPUR (April 17): An unscheduled water supply interruption is currently being experienced in approximately 1,292 areas affecting 1.2 million users in seven areas in the Klang Valley, Malaysiakini reported today.

The report citing a statement from Pengurusan Air Selangor corporate communications head Abdul Halem Mat Som today said the seven areas - Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang / Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat will experience the water reduction due to lower levels in the main reservoirs.

"The Sungai Selangor Water Treatment Plant (WTP) Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 and Rantau Panjang WTP had to be shutdown at 11pm last night."

"All 4 WTPs were shutdown due to the detection of odour pollution at the raw water source in Sungai Selangor," he said in the statement.

"Water supply is expected to be restored in stages at all the affected areas beginning today at 12pm," he added.

This is because odour readings had returned to 0 ton and all plants had resumed operations by 6.30am.

"Swift action of the release of raw water through the alternative pumping operation at Bestari Jaya accelerated the flushing out of contaminated water downstream of Sungai Selangor until there was no more odour detected at the intake of all four WTPs," Abdul Halem said.

He urged water consumers to use water prudently and monitor Air Selangor's website or social media for updates.

According to Malaysiakini, these are the affected areas:
