Start filling up your empty Spritzers: Major Kuala Lumpur water cuts next week, some areas experiencing 86-hour disruption

In anticipation of Selangor state’s biggest ever water cut, the water authority overseeing the upgrade is telling the 620,000 households soon to be affected by the cut to story 48 hours-worth of water.

Beginning April 24, the Selangor River Phase 2 Water Treatment Plant (LRA SSP2) will be shutdown, affecting over 4.14 million consumers across 577 areas of the city and its greater area, including Klang, Shah Alam, Petaling, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Langat and Kuala Selangor.

Servicing will begin at 9am Wednesday, and continue through until 11pm. Those that will be hardest hit are the homes that will be without water for up to 86 hours; however, the works are necessary say National Water Services Commission (SPAN) chairman Charles Santiago (aka, the woke MP from Klang), who explained that they are on a short time line to carry out the changes before any damage or electric system failure occurs to plant.

“It is critical that urgent repair works are done immediately to avoid an explosion at the plant,” he said.

“Although the water disruption is expected to last for 86 hours, we expect water supply to resume to 50% of the affected areas within 24-hours of repair works being done,” said another SPAN official at a press conference this morning.

He added that 82 water tankers, 17 jumbo tanks, and 160 static water tanks are expected to be deployed during this period, going to critical locations such as area hospitals, medical centers, and dialysis centers.

Consumers in need of water for specific cases such as weddings or funerals can request a water deployment.
