PETALING JAYA: Water supply has been restored to most areas which experienced disruption due to maintenance works done by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), says Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas).
In a statement, the water concessionaire said that as at 7am Thursday, supply to all areas within Zone 1 had been completely restored, while Zone 2 was 99.5% restored, with only Klang still experiencing supply disruption.
“All efforts are being made to ensure water supply is restored in Kg Rantau Panjang and Taman Cempaka Sari in Klang.
“For these two areas we expect for a full restoration by this (Thursday) evening,” it said.
Syabas said it would continue to oversee the water supply status to ensure the quantity and pressure were at optimum levels.
“Users who are in need of water supply can SMS (TANKER <space> Name and address) to 15300,” it said in the statement.
Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley area were subject to water shortages since Dec 19 due to a preventive maintenance at the Main Inteake Substations (PMU) belonging to TNB.
TNB had explained that the water cut was necessary as the Bukit Badong substations supplied electricity to the Sungai Selangor water treatment plants.
The initial disruption was supposed to take place until Dec 24, which led to a huge backlash from the rakyat who condemned scheduling of the disruption during the festive season.
