In their statement, Air Selangor said that the water treatment process at the Sungai Selangor Phase 1, 2, 3 and Rantau Panjang plants began at 6pm yesterday. These four plants are operating at full output capacity to restore water supply to main pipes and terminal ponds.
Air Selangor has since mobilised a total of 91 water tanker trucks to critical premises such as hospitals and dialysis centres, which are also affected by the water cut.
Affected consumers who are still waiting for their water supply to be restored can get water supply assistance through 34 static water tanks, 17 local service centres (Pusat Khidmat Setempat) and 21 public taps. Their locations can be found here.
The company has advised consumers to comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) under the conditional movement control order (CMCO) when getting water from tanker trucks, service centres and public taps.
