The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETAL­ING JAYA: Wa­ter sup­ply in the Petal­ing, Sepang, and Hulu Lan­gat dis­tricts has mostly been re­stored while sup­ply to the Kuala Lan­gat dis­trict will be re­stored by to­day.

Syabas cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tions chief Amin Lin Ab­dul­lah said wa­ter sup­ply was re­stored in stages since the Sun­gai Se­menyih wa­ter treat­ment plant re­sumed op­er­a­tions after it was shut down again due to con­tam­i­na­tion.

“As of this morn­ing (Oct 30) al­most all af­fected ar­eas have re­cov­ered ex­cept for ar­eas in Kuala Lan­gat.

“Wa­ter sup­ply is be­ing re­stored in stages due to a four-fold in­crease in de­mand for wa­ter from service reser­voirs, stor­age tanks at premises and panic stor­age by con­sumers,” Amin told theSun.

Mean­while, he said, wa­ter tankers are be­ing sent to ar­eas still without wa­ter in Kuala Lan­gat and this would be con­tin­ued un­til wa­ter sup­ply is com­pletely re­stored to­day.

The ar­eas af­fected in­clude Ta­man Gem­bira, Ta­man Sri Cheed­ing, Ta­man Sen­tosa, Ta­man Bant­ing Me­wah, Bukit Cheed­ing, Kam­pung Ke­lanang and Ta­man Yayasan. Jen­jarom new vil­lage, Ta­man Jaya Utama and Ta­man Dato Hor­mat are among other ar­eas.
