Water Supply Disruption at Peak 208 Resolved


MONDAY, 7 Oct: Residents at Peak 208, Taman Kajang Utama, are now able to breathe a sigh of relief because the water supply disruptions at their homes did not go on for too long.

Assemblyman for Kajang, Lee Chin Cheh said, the disruption which affected nearly 800 residents was because of maintenance work under their treatment plan at the Sungai Semenyih Water Treatment Plant.


Last Wednesday, water disruptions were resolved and residents enjoyed water supply as usual.

“Three weeks ago, Konsortium ABASS Sdn Bhd (ABBAS) stopped operations at one of the retention ponds to allow for maintenance for the water treatment plan to be implemented,” he said when contacted by TVSelangor.

Chin added, a week after the operation was carried out, higher grounds, especially the Taman Kajang Utama residential area, was affected.

“I extended this matter to Syabas and they informed that the plant was under the supervision of ABASS. However, Syabas will monitor the water levels of the plant. If it is detrimental, they will send a letter to ABBAS to stop the maintenance work.

For the record, areas around Semenyih, Kajang and Bangi, receive water supply from the Sungai Semenyih Water Treatment Plant which is managed by Konsortium ABASS Sdn Bhd (ABASS).

The plant, with a capacity design of 545 million litres per day (MLD) has been operating above it design capacity (overload) by producing 683 MLD and production cannot be increased further.

Water disruptions often occur due to the water recovery process which takes a long time because the production capacity of the water treatment plant is at its maximum level.
