Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) Corporate Communication and Public Affairs assistant general manager Priscilla Alfred said only 2,388 accounts in Klang and Shah Alam, and 842 accounts in Petaling were still experiencing low water pressure.

“The water supply in affected areas in Gombak and Kuala Lumpur have been fully restored since 9am today.

“Syabas expects the supply to all areas on higher ground and at the rear end of the water distribution system to be fully restored by tomorrow morning,” she said in a statement here today.

The areas that were still under low pressure are Bandar Baru Sri Petaling, Desa Petaling, Jalan Kuchai Lama, Jalan Klang Lama, Kuchai Enterpreneurs Park and Taman OUG.

Other areas are Jalan Sungai Besi, Kampung Baru Salak Selatan, Kampung Malaysia, Taman Bukit Indah, Taman Desa and kawasan Bukit Naga.

Alfred said works to rehabilitate and upgrade the main treatment plant was completed by Puncak Niaga Sdn Bhd by 8 pm today.

“Subsequently, the treated water would be channeled into the Matang Pagar balancing reservoir. At the same time, Syabas would re activate distribution from 41 Syabas’ main reservoirs and service reservoirs,” she said.

She urged consumers to use water sparingly, as it would help to expedite  restoration for areas that were still experiencing low pressure.
