Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) has discontinued entirely the water supply disruptions which were scheduled until Christmas eve.

Syabas in a statement said supply has been restored to most areas at 7am today, following disruptions that began on Monday to facilitate Tenaga Nasional Bhd repairs at Bukit Badong, Hulu Selangor.

According to Syabas, Areas in Zone 1 have achieved 100% recovery, while areas in Zone 2 have achieved 99.5% recovery.

The two areas still without water are Kg Rantau Panjang and Taman Cempaka Sari in Klang, but Syabas said it was working to ensure that supply is resumed by evening.

TNB had shut down its main entry substation in Bukit Badong for what it described as emergency repairs, which were initially scheduled for September but delayed at the request of water firms and the National Water Services Commission (SPAN).

The repairs had required three major water treatment facilities along Sungai Selangor to run at lowered capacity.

The water disruption affected supply to nearly four million consumers in the Klang Valley.
