SELAYANG, Oct 14 — The water supply in the areas affected by the maintenance and upgrade works on the Sungai Selangor Phase 1 Water Treatment Plant’s (SSP1 WTP) critical assets will be distributed in stages this evening.
Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the water will be channeled to consumers starting at 5pm this evening, after the 12-hour long upgrade works have been completed.
“The works were completed at 5am today. I see the water distribution can take place in less than 12 hours, between eight to 10. So the supply occurs earlier in stages,” he said after launching the Sukarelawan Kesihatan Komuniti Selangor earlier today.
The public in the Petaling, Kuala Lumpur, Klang, Shah Alam, Gombak, Hulu Selangor, Kuala Langat, and Kuala Selangor districts were advised beforehand to store sufficient amounts of water at home and at work, in anticipation of the scheduled water disruption.
Users in the 998 affected areas can refer to www.hentitugas.airselangor.com to see when the water supply will return to their respective area.
Starting yesterday until Saturday (October 13 to 16) Air Selangor prepared 18 public water pipes and mobilised 105 tanker lorries for critical premises including hospitals, dialysis centres, and funerals.
Four water filling stations have also been opened for commercial customers, where they can make purchases using tanker lorries.
