Syabas: Water treatment plants back in operation at 3.30am

The Sungai Selangor Water Treatment Plant Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 and the Rantau Panjang Water Treatment Plant were back in operation at 3.30am this morning, Selangor Water Supply Company Sdn Bhd confirmed.

The four water treatment plants was forced to shut down due to diesel contamination of raw water at Sungai Selangor.

The shutdown happened just a day after operations of the water treatment plants since it was restored from an earlier incident of odour pollution suspected from a discharge of workshops near Sungai Liam in Batang Kali.

“We are still in the process of improving and stabilising the pool and pressure levels in the distribution system for the water recovery process in stages,” said Syabas Head of Communications & Communications Relations Department Abdul Raof Ahmad.

The water tankers were deployed to help areas with critical shortages, according to Syabas.

“Since this incident involves large scale disruption to the water supply, customers are advised to seek support for assistance at local service centres to avoid delays in receiving water tankers’ assistance,” said Syabas. Syabas also notified the public that they can get regular updates/latest information via the
