Water supply has been restored completely to Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, while the resumption rate for all other affected areas ranged between 81% and 98%, as at 6 pm on 22 July 2019.
In a statement issued by Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd, head of customer relations and communications Abdul Raof Ahmad said water supply in these other areas comprising the Petaling, Gombak, Klang/Shah Alam and Kuala Langat districts, was expected to resume completely at midnight tonight (22 July).
The water supply restoration rate for these areas yesterday evening comprised Kuala Langat (81%), Klang/Shah Alam (96%), Gombak (97%) and Petaling (98%).
Meanwhile, in a statement, Indah Water Konsortium Sdn Bhd said the clean-up of engine oil found at the entry chamber of the sewage treatment plant in Batang Kali, Hulu Selangor, has been completed, with the plant back in operation at 5 pm the day before.
Bernama reported that oil-based waste was suspected to have been the cause of odour pollution which prompted the temporary closure of four water treatment plants comprising Sungai Selangor Phase 1 (SSP1), SSP2, SSP3 and Rantau Panjang on Friday.
