Brace yourselves folks, a 4-day water cut is set to take place later this month and almost 1000 areas in the Klang Valley will be affected by this.
From 13th – 16th October, 998 areas across the Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Selangor regions will experience water disruption due to upgrading and maintenance work at the Sungai Selangor Phase 1 Water Treatment Plant (SSP1 WTP).
“Water supply will be distributed in stages to consumers starting 5pm on 14th October after the upgrading and maintenance works have been completed, and the supply distribution system has been stabilised,” said Air Selangor. “Supply is expected to fully recover at 9pm on 16th October. The duration of the disruption and recovery will vary depending on the distance of consumers’ premises and the water pressure at the distribution system.”
Air Selangor will mobilise 105 water tankers to the affected areas. However, priority will be given to critical premises including hospitals, dialysis centres and funeral parlours. Check out the list of the affected areas here:
