Air Selangor considered for water facility license approvals


SHAH ALAM, JUL 8:  The Selangor Government is considering a long-term plan to give the processing of approvals for service licenses to the state water management body.

Infrastructure, Public Amenities, Agricultural Modernisation and Agro-Based Industries Exco Zaidy Abdul Talib said the matter is still being discussed to identify the best mechanism for the benefit of Selangor citizens.

“New proposals and plans will be implemented after Air Selangor receives its facility and service licenses and approval on its business plan.

“At the moment, the Federal and State Government are still discussing the best mechanism with which to give the service and facility licenses to Air Selangor,” he said when contacted by SelangorKini.

Prior to this, on August 2 last year, the Federal and State Governments had signed a main agreement on the restructuring of water services industry and a long-term solution for Selangor.

This means the State Government will be in full control of the three concessionaire companies which have agreed to the RM9.65 billion takeover bid.

Puncak Niaga Sdn Bhd, Selangor Water Supply Company Pvt Ltd (Syabas) and Abbass Consortium Pvt Ltd (Abbas) agreed to the bid, while the Selangor Water Production Company Pvt Ltd (Splash) will be taken over via the Water Services Industry Act.

The State Government also resolved the water crisis in Selangor through long term plans and mitigation projects that are expected to provide sufficient and clean water across the state.
