“Syabas will continue to provide emergency water supply through 49 tankers that have been deployed since the occurrence of this unscheduled water supply disruption,” he said in a statement.

On March 3, the Sungai Semenyih Water Treatment Plant (WTP) stopped operations because there was contamination with the pH levels of raw water being at 5.65, ammonia (1.60 ppm) and manganese (1.51 ppm).

Investigation by the Selangor Water Management Authority (LUAS) and ABBAS found that the sample analysis for the pH parameters, ammonia and manganese at the Semenyih River and its streams were at normal levels.

In relation to that, the Sungai Semenyih WTP resumed operations at full capacity at 3.00 am last night when the pH parameters stabilised at the intake at a rate of 6.86 ppm, ammonia (0.95 ppm) and manganese (0.41 ppm).

Zaidy said that until 7 last night, the reading at the intake for the pH parameter was at 6.69 ppm, ammonia (1.07 ppm) and manganese (0.28 ppm).

“Investigations are still on-going to identify the cause that resulted in the contamination,” he said.
