Water tank is developer’s responsibility

SHAH ALAM, MAR 31: The responsibility to maintain, ensure the safety and cleanliness of water tank site lies with developer until it is handed-over to licensed water supplier.
Infrastructure, Public Amenities, Agricultural Modernisation and Agro-Based Industries Exco, Zaidy Abdul Talib said this is consistent with the provisions in the Water Services Industry Rules (Water Reticulation and Pipe Installation) 2014.
“The provision is covered in Section III (Chapter 1: Carrying-out Responsibilities) and Section III (Chapter 4: Water Supply System Handover).
“Developers must comply with all the technical requirements before handing over the water supply system to the license-holder.
“This include complying to deliver water tanks to be gazetted as Reserved Water Supply before it is taken over and operated by a license-holder,” he said during the Selangor State Assembly (DNS) today.
He was replying to Kinrara Assemblyman, Ng Sze Han’s question regarding water-tank towers.
Zaidy said, there are 14 water tank systems which failed to be handed over to Air Selangor due to developers’ failure to set them up according to plan and to produce Form 12B for gazetting as Reserved Water Supply.
“In special cases, such as developer goes bankrupt, it would depend on the project’s recovery process, whether it is taken over by the State Government or other party.
“After a takeover, the responsibility lies with the new developer,” he said replying to Ng’s additional questions.
