KUANTAN (Jan 6): Flood has caused the shutdown of 17 water treatment plants (LRA) in seven Pahang districts, said Pengurusan Air Pahang Bhd (PAIP) in a statement yesterday.
It added that 26 LRA were impacted but nine started operating at 11am yesterday.
"It follows a rise in river levels and power cut," the statement said.
PAIP has sent a water tanker to affected locations — and most importantly to temporary flood centres — while distributing potable water as well.
PAIP has also received extra water tankers through the National Water Services Commission (SPAN) and operators in Johor, Negeri Sembilan, Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Penang.
