Today onwards, the residences of Klang Valley will face water disruption for several days. This is because Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (SYABAS) is repairing its water supply system works at Sungai Selangor Phase 2 Water Treatment Plant (SSP2 WTP).
According to Syabas, the repair works could take about 14 hours to complete. However, the recovery process could take much longer time. A total of 577 areas surrounding Klang Valley residents will face the water supply disruption from today 9 am onwards until Saturday, April 27.
If you are still unsure your area is affected by the water disruption issue, there are few tools created by Malaysians. Thanks to one of the Malaysian who actually maps out the affected areas using Google Maps. This was created by a Malaysian whose Twitter handle name is @MambangStory. The map shows specific areas which are affected by the water disruption. Additionally, it is able to show the expected date the water will be resume too. From Google Maps, we can pinpoint a few locations might resume the water service earlier than other areas. Click here to use this tool.
Malaysiakini Water Disruption search tool
Other than that, Malaysiakini has also developed its own Water Disruption search tool where netizens can search for the affected area. Users are advised to search using their residential area name. Apart from that, this search tool is also able to display the Local Service Centre from the result page. Users can view the Local Service Centre where you can get the water supply starting from April 26.
However, Syabas did provide the list of areas which will be affected by the water disruption in the Klang Valley area. The problem is it will be kind of difficult for users to locate their residential area from the list provided by Syabas. Using Google Maps and the Malaysiakini Water Disruption search tool it will be very easier for users to locate the affected areas.
In conclusion, we will advise all the Klang Valley residents to use these tools to check the affected areas. Make sure, you minimize the water usage during the water disruption period. According to Air Selangor, they will work round the clock to complete the restoration service as soon as possible. You can get the latest updates from Syabas official website or from the Air Selangor Facebook and Twitter page.
