Selangor targets 15% water reserve margin

SHAH ALAM, DEC 28: Selangor’s water reserve margin is approximately 4% and not negative as claimed, according to Infrastructure, Public Amenities, Agricultural Modernisation and Agro-Based Industries Exco Zaidy Abdul Talib.
Syabas Corporate Communications Head Amin Lin Abdullah agreed that Selangor’s water margin is currently about 4%.
“The reserve margin fluctuates depending on demand. When demand is high at certain times, the reserve level will fall,” he told the Star Online.
Commenting on whether Selangor had produced treated water exceeding the capacity of current treatment plants, he said almost all plants are currently producing water beyond their capacities.
Amin said that this is the reason the state is building another two water treatment plants.
“We are building the Semenyih 2 and Labohan Dagang water treatment plants to increase water production to meet growing demands,” he said.
Amin said that in the long run, the State Government aims to reach a water reserve margin of 15%.
