Air Selangor mobilises 29 water tankers to affected areas

By Zareef Muzammil

SHAH ALAM, April 6 — Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) has mobilised 29 water tanks to areas affected by the scheduled valve replacement works in the raw water pipeline from the Klang Gates Dam.

Its Corporate Communication head Elina Baseri said priorities are given to critical premises such as hospitals, dialysis centres and funeral ceremonies.

“Air Selangor also provides water purchasing facilities for industries or commercial clients with payment at the customer service counter.

“Users must provide their own vehicles or rent their own water tanker. Water can be collected at two stations at Jalan TPP 5/17, Taman Perindustrian Puchong 5/17 and Air Selangor Hulu Langat storage, in Section 13, Jalan P/4 Bandar Baru Bangi,” said the water operator in a statement today.

Elina said they also opened local service centres at a location beside the Kuala Lumpur Hospital football field, and at the My Capital car park at Jalan Jejawi, Bangsar, for users to lodge complaints and directly contact their customer service officer.

Meanwhile, she informed that the valve replacement works, which started at 9am today, are scheduled to complete at 9pm, but the plant and the distribution system need to be stabilised before the water supply is restored to users.

“The duration of the scheduled disruption and the restoration of water supply in the affected areas will be done in stages and vary depending on the location of the consumers’ premises as well as the water pressure level on the water distribution system,” she said.

Previously, Air Selangor had informed that 12 areas in Gombak and 46 areas in Kuala Lumpur will be affected by scheduled water cuts for 48 to 68 hours beginning today due to maintenance works on several of its main water assets this year.
