The scheduled water disruption in the Klang Valley this week is not likely to last six days, Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali has said.
Azmin said that the state wants the cuts to be shortened so that it does not affect Christmas celebrations this weekend, The Star Online reported.
”The state’s directive is that we want the disruption period to be shortened so that those celebrating Christmas will not be affected.
”That is why a meeting has been called. Air Selangor will also be giving a full briefing on the latest situation,” he said.
He said that the water cuts, which were initially slated to last six days till Christmas eve, would not last for all of six days.
Azmin pointed out that from the initial report I received, the disruption is not likely to last up to six days because the treatment plants are not entirely closed.
He said that generators will continue running to treat raw water.
The disruption starts today until Dec 24, is due to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) carrying out repair works to a substation.
