The water cut follows the shutting down of the Sungai Semenyih water treatment plant at 11.10am today.

PETALING JAYA: Some 463 areas in five regions in the Klang Valley will be facing unscheduled water cuts after odour pollution was detected at a pump station this morning.

In a statement, Air Selangor corporate communications head Elina Baseri said the Sungai Semenyih water treatment plant was shut down at 11.10am after odour pollution was detected at the Jenderam Hilir raw water pump station.

Some 172 areas in Petaling, 194 in Sepang, 54 in Hulu Langat, 23 in Putrajaya and 20 in Kuala Langat will be affected by the water disruption.

She added that the company understood consumers’ need for clean water, especially with the surge in Covid-19 cases, and will do all it can to minimise the impact of the disruption.

“Air Selangor will provide updates progressively from time to time through all mediums, especially the mass media.

“Enquiries and complaints can also be submitted to the Help Centre via the website and the app,” she said. - FMT
