Sungai Selangor dam water level consistent

SHAH ALAM, 26 Feb: The water at the Sungai Selangor dam continues to remain at a consistent level despite reduced rainfall as a result of the Equinox phenomenon that brings warm weather that is expected to begin next week until early April.

According to the Selangor Water Management Authority (LUAS), the dam is now at 77.86 percent at a rate of 179.08 million cubic metres.

For the Batu Dam, it records a retention rate of 91.59 percent with 29.28 million cubic metres, while the Klang Gates record a dam level of 89.23 percent or 22.61 million cubic metres.

The Sungai Labu retention pond is at 3.68 percent at a rate of 6.51 million cubic metres and the Langat dam is at 97.09 percent or 33.10 million cubic metres.

Apart from that, the Semenyih dam is at 56.89 million cubic metres (96.32 percent), the Sungai Tinggi dam is at 79.45 million cubic metres (69.29 percent) and Tasik Subang is at 4.15 million cubic metres (98.65 percent).

However, LUAS has already started cloud seeding around the Sungai Selangor dam to increase the capacity of water and to prepare for any possibility of water crisis in the Klang Valley.

The Sungai Selangor Dam supplied about 60 percent of treated water to Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Selangor.

A total of 6.7 million people of Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya had to face water rationing from February 27 to April 30 last year in stages.

The problem was because several major dams in the state experienced a decline in reservoir levels.
