CM: Water supply enough to face the drought

SHAH ALAM, 6 Mar: The water supply in Selangor is controlled and it is expected to be able to continue to supply water to consumers.

The Chief Minister, Mohamed Azmin Ali, said that this is based on the ability to provide an adequate supply of raw water after receiving a briefing from the relevant agencies.

He said that this is because the capacity of the dams show higher levels compared to the same period last year.

For example on March 14, 2014, the Sungai Selangor Dam recorded readings at 44.84 percent compared to today, 75.05 percent.

The Sungai Selangor Dam and the Sungai Tinggi Dam are the major dams that supply water to Selangor, covering 60 percent of the total water supply for the whole of Selangor, the Federal territory of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.

He said that the Selangor government has and continues to implement measures to ensure the sustainability of the water supply and the availability of water in dams by:

i. Continuing cloud seeding operations that allow rain to fall at catchment areas and river basins.

ii. Continuing and managing water pumping operations from catchment polls around Bestari Jaya without compromising the quality of the water source.

iii. Controlling the release of water at dams to ensure that release is done optimally with regard to existing water resources.

iv. Having close cooperation between Selangor state government agencies and the Department of Environment to monitor and control to avoid contamination of water sources.

v. Rigorous enforcement through ongoing monitoring along rivers involved in supplying raw water such as Sungai Selangor, Sungai Langat and Sungai Semenyih, including during holidays.

He said that the Selangor government has also moved water from the Langat 2 tunnel to Sungai Langat, aiming to empower the resistance of Sungai Langat for the Sungai Langat Water Treatment Plant, Bukit Tampoi and Cheras Batu 11.
