Water crisis is Klang Valley is a plot by BN to make PR Selangor a guinea pig

Water rationing is a dirty tactic used by BN before GE13.

Rain falls in Selangor and Klang Valley for last several mouths are at the normal level, almost every evening in KL is a raining day. The raw water in reservoirs and river is sufficient to meet the demand of water treatment plants.

The production of treated water of existing plants is able or not to meet the demand of water consumption in Klang Valley is still a debatable subject. 2 billion [the cost will be tripled to 6 billion after completion as usual] raw water project from Pahang River is a dubious project like many other BN white elephant projects.

To plug 40% leakage in water distribution system or increase more treated water is a contentious issue between Federal Government and Selangor state government.

I only trust water supply and demand study in Klang Valley done by an independent body like UN, I have doubt on any report’s accuracy from BN or PR governments.

Syabas: We are not to blame

KUALA LUMPUR: The current water crisis in Selangor is due to the state’s refusal to approve and implement projects to increase the production of treated water which is currently in short supply, said Syabas technical services executive director V. Subramaniam.

“The current water crisis affecting various areas of Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya is the result of depleting source of treated water to be distributed to consumers,” he said at the company’s headquarters in Bangsar, Tuesday.

Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim on Monday said the state government intended to take over the operations of Syabas after the company announced its intention to seek permission for immediate water rationing in several parts of the Klang Valley due to a worsening supply shortage.

Khalid had said he doubted that there was a real water crisis in the state as the Selangor water regulator and Syabas board of directors had not been informed of the proposal to start rationing.

Khalid cited Clause 32 of the concession agreement, which he claimed allows the state government to step in to manage operations now undertaken by Syabas, although he conceded that any takeover would need the approval of the Federal Government.

Meanwhile, Selangor executive councillor Dr Xavier Jayakumar said opn Tuesday that the seven dams in the state were full and overflowing.

Dr Xavier, who visited the Semenyih dam on Tuesday, said the it had been full the whole year.

“Water has been overflowing the whole year. And Sungai Semenyih has plenty of water, which means that there is no need to release water from the reservoir into the river,” he said.
