In a statement that was released on Sunday (18th December), the water supply company addressed the issue and dismissed false information that has been circulating on social media since the water disruption announcement on Thursday (15th December).
“With reference to the water interruption on Dec 19 due to the Tenaga Nasional Berhad’s (TNB) maintenance works at the Bukit Badong substation, many unofficial Water Supply Schedules and infographics regarding the matter are currently circulating on social media,” they said, adding that the Water Supply Schedule was planned from 19th -24th December issue and is categorised into 2 zones.
According to the NST, the reason behind the introduction of the scheduled recovery was to help the company manage the deployment of water tankers effectively according to the designated zones.
