Water disruption problem almost over in Klang

11 May 2019 / 13:23 H.

SHAH ALAM: Water supply has been restored to about 91% of the areas affected by three ruptured pipes near the Bating-Taiping West Coast Expressway (WCE).

Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) Customer Relations and Communications Department chief Abdul Raof Ahmad said work was underway to restore water supply by boosting water levels in ponds and increasing pressure in the distribution system to stabilise supply to recovering areas.

‘’Among the areas which are still recovering are Batu Belah, Bandar Sultan Sulaiman, Bandar Puteri & Putera 2, Jalan Kapar Batu 1 - 5, Kampung Keretapi, Sri Perantau Flats and Bandar Parkland,“ he said in a statement here today.

He said tanker lorries would continue to be mobilised and local service centres would remain operational until the supply recovered.

‘’The recovery status will continue to be updated and clients who are still affected can contact us at 15300 for aid or refer to the Air Selangor application for the latest information,’’ he added.

The incidents of three broken main pipes at the WCE project site since Saturday affected 800,000 consumers in 65 areas in Klang. — Bernama
