PETALING JAYA: Water supply has been restored to all affected areas in the Klang Valley which experienced disruption, according to the National Water Services Commission (SPAN).
The disruption was due to Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) maintenance work at the Bukit Gadong main intake substation.
As at 1pm, all 814 areas in the two affected zones have had water supply restored.
Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) said only Klang was still experiencing supply disruption.
A few areas in Gombak, namely Taman TAR, Ampang Jaya, Kampung Dato Mufti, Menara Mutiara Taman TAR and Taman Bukit Indah are still experiencing temporary water interruption following a burst pipe in the vicinity.
Efforts are being undertaken to expedite the repair work and recovery in these areas, Syabas said in a statement.
Syabas said the pipe incident was an isolated case and not related to the water supply disruption in areas which were involved in the Water Supply Recovery Schedule.
Klang Valley residents were subjected to water shortages since Dec 19 due to a preventive maintenance at the substations belonging to TNB.
TNB had pointed out that the water cuts were necessary as the Bukit Badong substations supplied electricity to the Sungai Selangor water treatment plants.
Initially, the water supply disruption to affected areas by the partial shutdown of the Sungai Selangor Phase 1, 2 and 3 water treatment plants was supposed to last until tomorrow.
