Water treatment plants should be connected to avoid disruptions

SHAH ALAM, 28 June: The Federation of Malaysian Consumers Associations (FOMCA) proposed for water treatment plants across the state to be connected to each other to prevent outage if a plant is closed.

Vice President Mohd Yusof Abdul Rahman said that the pollution frequency at some treatment plants cause the people to experience outage.

He said that so far, if a plant is contaminated, other plants cannot help as they are not connected to each other.

“The issue of inadequate treated water may be helped by this method.

“Some of the other treatment plants do not have a dense population, that is why they do not suffer shortages.

“While some areas, treatment plants cannot cope with the dense population,” he told Selangor Kini.

Yusof said that increasing treatment plants is also necessary to meet the treated water reserve.

“We want rivers to not be polluted and clean.

“For example, farms or waste disposal sites near rivers should be moved to prevent river pollution to a point where plants cannot process treated water,” he said.

Recently, Semenyih and Beranang experienced water shortage because the treatment plant could not cope with the dense population.
