KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 5 — Water services at affected areas in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor will be restored to half of its original capacity by tonight, said Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amiruddin Shari.
Amiruddin said that the state, along with Air Selangor, Selangor Water Management Authority (LUAS), and other agencies related to water supply services have been working on the water recovery plan to ensure 1.2 million affected users would be relieved.
“We have been working together with the National Water Services Commission (SPAN) as well as the Bomba and Army to send water tanks and lorries to cater to the needs of the locality.
“We target the water supply to recover by 50 per cent. But it all also depends on the level of the water retention pond and the full recovery of the water pressure through its connecting pipes,” he told reporters in a special press conference at the Air Selangor headquarters at Jalan Pantai Baharu today.
