KUALA LUMPUR: Distilled water kiosk operators must now apply for a new water supply account and install separate individual water meters, Selangor Water Supply Company (Syabas) said in a statement today.
It stated that under a new ruling by the National Water Services Commission (SPAN), the operators have to do so for each water kiosk as they are not allowed to connect the kiosk to an existing premise’s water account.
It urged them to register for the account for each kiosk to avoid any inconvenience.
The operators can apply for the account through Syabas’ online customer service portal, with the applicants only needing to complete and trasmit the details online.
SYABAS said it is an offence under the Water Services Industry Act (WSIA) 2006 if they fail to comply with the rule and warned that failure to do so will result either in termination of the water supply to the kiosk or taking appropriate action against the operator.
