SHAH ALAM, 17 MAY: The Sungai Selangor dam which provides an estimate amount of 60 percent water to Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor has been recording a steady rise in water levels due to the daily rain over the period of three weeks, this month.

It continued to increase compared to previous record of 40.68 percent on May 4th, while the capacity of the dam if full is at 235,320,000 cubic meters.

The design of the dam is at 400 meters wide at the foot, 800 meters long and 110 meters high, consisting of 1.2 million cubic meters of clay and 6.4 million cubic meters of granite.
