PETALING JAYA: Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) said water supply is expected to resume as scheduled in the affected areas in Klang Valley.

In a statement yesterday, the company said the repairs for the burst surge vessel system at the Sungai Selangor Phase Three Water Treatment Plant (SSP3) was in the final stages.

Syabas said the water treatment plant would undergo checks and water supply would resume in stages.

“Syabas, with the cooperation of the local authorities and water operators from several states, will continue to render assistance by providing water tanks to residents in the affected areas,” it said, adding that the nine one-stop service centres will be operating 24 hours.

It added that 16 public tap locations had been activated for the convenience of affected residents.

“Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd is taking every step to provide help and speed up the repair works”, it said.

The water supply to the Petaling, Klang/Shah Alam, Gombak and Kuala Lumpur districts is expected to be fully restored by 6pm on Sunday while users in Kuala Langat and Hulu Selangor are expected to have their water supply fully restored at 6am tomorrow.

A surge vessel system burst at the SSP3 water treatment plant on Tuesday, causing a delay to the resumption of water supply to affected areas in the Klang Valley.

The incident occurred as the plant was about to resume operations, and had caused serious injuries to staff on site.
