Air Selangor announced the restoration of water supply in Kuala Langat, Hulu Langat, Sepang, and Putrajaya on the 25th of December. The areas that had been affected by the closure of the Sungai Semenyih treatment plant had their water supplies restored by 12pm on the same day.

Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) Head of Corporate Communications Abdul Halem Mat further announced that 98.8% of the areas affected in Petaling had also had their water restored.

In a statement, Halem stated that, “Since most areas have received water supply, several local service centres were shut down and public pipes were turned off since noon. Meanwhile, the number of tankers in the restored areas had been reduced and some have been diverted to areas still needing assistance.”

According to him, all the other areas that had been affected which had not had their water restored by 12 noon on 25th December, would have their water restored within the same day, before midnight by the very latest.

The Sungai Semenyih Water Treatment Plant (LRA) was forced to shut down operations on the 21st of December, mere days before Christmas amidst major holiday preparations, affecting many areas and households.

The reason for the shut down was due to irresponsible acts by reprehensible parties illegally discharging chemical waste near the Indah Water Konsortium Sdn Bhd sewage plant at Bandar Bukit Mahkota, which caused odor pollution incidents in Sungai Semenyih.

Due to the acts of these irresponsible culprits, 366 areas with 328,957 user accounts in Petaling, Hulu Langat, Kuala Langat and Sepang were affected.

Water is a necessity for everyone. The sad thing is water cuts, disruptions and pollution happen many times in 2019. Time for Air Selangor to prosecute the culprits. Need to have police and security guards to monitor the water treatment plants etc.
