Gangguan air Negeri Selangor 30 August 2013 – Selangor Water Interruption

This article was written in Malay as it involves a local state wide incident. My apologies to English only readers and subscribers.

Assalamualaikum,

Saya baru dimaklumkan bahawa 3 loji air terbesar di Selangor telah ditutup ekoran kejadian tumpahan minyak yang berlaku di Sungai Selangor awal pagi / tengahari tadi.

Say dapati sejak dari jam 5pm tadi, bekalan air telah pun dipotong di kebanyakan lokasi di Petaling Jaya. Antaranya kediaman kami sendiri yang terjejas akibat insiden tersebut.

Kesahihan maklumat ini telah dikuatkan dengan kenyataan tidak rasmi salah seorang analisa kimia di salah sebuah loji tersebut. Bekalan air telah dipotong sejak tengahari tadi.

Walau bagaimanapun tiada maklumat tentang gangguan ini didapati dari laman web Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd.

Setakat ini tidak diketahui sama ada situasi telah beransur pulih atau semakin serius. Akan tetapi saya syorkan pada semua penduduk Selangor agar jimatkan penggunaan air yang tinggal di tangki air kediaman masing2 dan gunakan air apabila benar-benar perlu sahaja.

Saya sendiri telah ke pasaraya untuk membeli sedikit bekalan. Khabarnya insiden ini mungkin berlarutan berhari-hari lamanya.

Agak pelik kerana sehingga waktu ini tiada apa-apa berita atau pengumuman rasmi mengenai insiden ini di mana-mana media massa.

Kami berdoa agar situasi kembali normal dengan segera dan akan maklumkan pada semua sekiranya terdapat perkembangan dalam insiden ini.

Update :
The issue lasted for several days and it was highlighted in media shortly after this article was published (in written web form and full blown tv and radio mainstream media afterwards). Some places were severely affected (eg. PJ) but within a day water supply was restored even though it was low pressured. However when our month end water bill come, it shot up quite a bit despite the cut off supply and low pressured water for a couple of days. Not sure why this happened, but alas the bill was just around RM10+ (good thing we lived in Selangor). Congrats to all who made this a fast recovery, especially when millions of peoples is at stake. At least we can count on our water department sector. I gave them a thumbs up!
