KUALA LUMPUR: As far as Klang Valley's water woes are concerned, history is repeating itself.
It is always the same old story — some irresponsible party dumps effluents into raw water sources and millions of people are left without water.
Federation of Malaysian Consumers Associations (Fomca) president Datuk Dr Marimuthu Nadason urged agencies and authorities involved in the supply chain of water regulation and distribution to undertake serious soul-searching over the latest incident involving Sungai Selangor.
He said for starters, the recent crisis reprised a fundamental concern, in that there was a need for sufficient water reserves should a water supply crisis strike again.
