Air Selangor Maintenance to Disrupt Water Supply in 7 Areas on June 5

Air Selangor will be conducting maintenance and asset replacement works at the Sungai Selangor Phase 1 Water Treatment Plant (LRA SSP1) on June 5, 2024, starting at 9:00 am. The works are expected to cause a temporary disruption of scheduled water supply in seven areas across the Klang Valley and Selangor, including Petaling, Klang, Shah Alam, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Hulu Selangor, and Kuala Selangor.

Why this matters: The temporary water supply disruption will have a significant impact on the daily lives of thousands of people in the affected areas, highlighting the importance of infrastructure maintenance and planning. The situation also underscores the need for effective communication and contingency measures to mitigate the effects of such disruptions on communities and businesses.

The maintenance and replacement works are scheduled to be completed by 7:00 pm on June 5. Following the completion of the works, consumers are expected to receive water in a phased manner starting from 3:00 am on June 6. Air Selangor projects that the percentage of water supply restoration in the affected areas will reach around 20% by 3:00 pm on June 6 and 90% by 3:00 am on June 7. Full recovery of water supply to all affected areas is expected by 12:00 noon on June 7.

To mitigate the impact of the water supply disruption, Air Selangor will provide temporary relief by deploying water tanker lorries to the affected areas. Priority will be given to critical premises such as hospitals, clinics, dialysis centers, and funeral ceremonies. Commercial customers have the option to purchase treated water supplies at any Air Selangor customer service counter in the affected regions.

The duration of the water supply interruption and restoration timeline in the affected areas may vary depending on the location of the consumer's premises and the water pressure in the supply distribution system. Air Selangor advises affected consumers to store sufficient water supply for their daily needs and use water sparingly during the disruption period.

Residents and businesses in the impacted regions can obtain the latest updates and information regarding the water supply disruption and restoration progress through the Air Selangor mobile application, social media channels, or by contacting the Air Selangor Call Centre at 15300.
