SHAH ALAM, Jan 26 — The burst pipe in Section 15 yesterday has since been fully repaired, with water to return in stages by tomorrow, said Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor)
Its corporate communication head Elina Baseri said the water supply is expected to fully recovery by 9am on January 27.
“The duration of water supply recovery differs from one area to another, depending on the location and distance of consumers’ premises.
“Alternative assistance through water tankers will be mobilised to affected areas, with
priority given to critical premises during the unscheduled water supply disruption,” she said in a statement.
Elina reminded Air Selangor consumers to cooperate by practising social distancing and wearing face masks while collecting their water supply from the tankers.
“We will provide updates progressively from time to time through all mediums,
especially the mass media. Consumers can also refer to all our official communication
channels such as the Air Selangor app, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, or call the Air Selangor Contact Centre at 15300.
“Air Selangor would also like to encourage consumers to submit their inquiries and complaints to the non-voice communication channel on the Help Centre via www.airselangor.com and the Air Selangor app,” she said.
The burst pipe occurred following road development work nearby the Federal Highway by a third party yesterday, resulting in an unscheduled water supply disruption which affected 142 areas in the Petaling and Klang districts.
