KUALA LUMPUR, April 24 — Upgrading works at Sungai Selangor Phase 2 Water Treatment Plant, which caused water cuts in the Klang Valley, have been completed at 11pm, said Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas).

It said in a statement that the plant will be reactivated and the process of distributing treated water to the main reservoirs and the main distribution system will be carried out before water is distributed to customers.

This process, it said, is expected to take 24 hours.

“The supply recovery will vary from one area to another depending on the geographical location and altitude of customers’ premises,” Syabas said.

It urged customers to get the latest updates on the water supply at www.syabas.com.my, Facebook “Air Selangor”, Twitter @air_selangor and the Air Selangor smart phone application, which can be downloaded on Google Play and App Store.
