WATER supply in 1,279 areas in Klang Valley is expected to be restored in stages beginning 3pm today.
According to Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd all four water treatment plants at Sungai Selangor have resumed operations this morning.
The suspension of these four plants is causing an unscheduled water supply disruption involving 1.14 million accounts covering 1,279 areas in Kuala Lumpur (KL), Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat, where water supply was halted since 6.00pm yesterday.
Last night The Ministry of Environment and Water (KASA) is offering a reward of RM5,000 to anyone with information and evidence that will lead to the arrest of those responsible for the water pollution that resulted in the latest disruption.
“The reward given is in line with the government’s continuous commitment to Budget 2021, which will provide special allocations to any (party) who can channel information on any misconduct and violations of the law, including the issue of river pollution.
“I view this matter very seriously because there have been seven incidents where water treatment plants in Selangor have had to shut down due to pollution this year,” he said in a statement
