More than a million households in the Klang Valley set to endure water disruption AGAIN

PETALING JAYA (Nov 10): Water cuts will plague up to 1,139,008 consumers again from 6pm today owing to pollution in Sungai Selangor, Air Selangor announced today.

The cuts will impact 1,279 areas in Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat, said Air Selangor.

It was reported earlier that the raw water source at the water treatment plants at SSP 1, 2, 3 and Rantau Panjang were found to be contaminated at about 12.20pm today. This has resulted in the water cuts.

The TON (Threshold Odour Number) emanating from Rantau Panjang registered 8 TON while the water treatment plants were at 4 TON, Air Selangor said.

“Efforts to melt the solvents and ‘flush’ the contaminants that we found in Sungai Selangor have been done by releasing 300 million litres of water from the Sungai Selangor dam and 500 litres from the Sungai Tinggi dam daily.

“At the same time, Air Selangor has pumped 192 litres of raw water from the KL Larut pool for the very same reasons.

“We understand the need for clean water especially in times of Covid-19 and the conditional movement control order and are taking all necessary steps to minimise the impact of these disruption to our affected customers,” Air Selangor added.

According to the Malay Mail, this will be the ninth time water supply in the Klang Valley has been cut this year.
