Air Selangor: Water supply restoration reaches 69 pct, full recovery by 6am

By Selangor Journal Team 

SHAH ALAM, Oct 12 — Water supply restoration to areas affected by a scheduled disruption due to works at the Sungai Langat Water Treatment Plant (WTP) has reached 69.3 per cent as of 9pm today. 

Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd said while supply to the Hulu Langat district has been fully restored, the status in Petaling and Kuala Lumpur was at 91.9 per cent and 50.5 per cent respectively.

The two locations are set to receive full water supply by 6am tomorrow, the state water operator said. 

During this period, Air Selangor will mobilise 81 water tankers to locations still affected by the disruption. 

Priority will be given to critical premises like hospitals, clinics, dialysis centres and for funerals.

Air Selangor said the restoration schedule had to be extended to ensure the supply of treated water is clean and safe for public consumption, following an unforeseen technical issue during the works conducted at the Sungai Langat WTP previously. 

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused to consumers as a result of this delay. Our focus now is to ensure supply restoration is done efficiently.” 

Members of the public can get the latest updates on the status of their water supply through the various Air Selangor platforms, including its mobile application, Facebook, Instagram, and X.

Alternatively, the public can also reach out to Air Selangor directly via the 15300 helpline.

Yesterday, Air Selangor said the asset upgrading, maintenance and replacement works at the Sungai Langat WTP were completed on Tuesday night. 

It initially projected full water supply restoration by 12pm today, although this was later extended due to minor on-the-ground technical difficulties.
