KUALA LUMPUR: Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) plans to carry out maintenance on several key assets this year, to ensure consumers can enjoy continuous water supply in the future.

Air Selangor corporate communications chief Elina Baseri in a statement today said the maintenance work had received the approval of the National Water Services Commission.

The maintenance work include the connection of new pipes near the Carlsberg factory at Persiaran Selangor, Section 15, Shah Alam, which would cause a 48-hour water supply disruption in some areas.

Elina said the work would be carried out on March 30, from 9am to 9pm, with scheduled water supply disruptions in five areas in Petaling, 14 areas in Klang and 12 areas in Shah Alam, while supply was expected to be fully restored by 9am, April 1.

Apart from that, she said the valve replacement work on the raw water pipeline from the Klang Gates Dam would cause a temporary shutdown of the Bukit Nanas and Wangsa Maju Water Treatment Plants (LRAs) and this would result in a scheduled water supply disruption for 68 hours.

Elina said the work would be carried out from 9am to 9pm on April 6, and it would cause water supply disruptions in 12 areas in Gombak and 46 areas in Kuala Lumpur, with full recovery expected by 5am on April 9.

“The duration of the water supply disruption and restoration time in the affected areas varies depending on the quantity of water supply, the distance of the consumers’ premises, and the water pressure in the distribution system,” she said.

Meanwhile, Air Selangor is also planning to carry out maintenance work on main assets at the Cheras Batu 11 LRA on June 15, the Sungai Langat LRA (July 6) and the Sungai Selangor Phase 1 LRA (Oct 5).

According to Elina, the implementation of the scheduled work took into account various factors, including avoiding the main examination periods for government schools as well as dates with important events planned.
