All’s well despite dry taps

PETALING JAYA (Dec 17, 2013): It was a relatively stress-free day for Klang Valley residents today despite disruption of water supply as Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) began repair work at the Sungai Selangor water treatment plant phase 2.

Most city folk worried that the taps may run dry had already stored water.

Single mother R. Mogana @ Shuba told theSun that the residents at Jalan Pekaka 8/1, Section 8, Kota Damansara, started stocking up water only today afternoon once they knew about it through word of mouth from neighbours.

“There were no notices from the management or Syabas,” she said, adding that she only knew about the water cut in an internet posting.

Hopefully, this inconvenience won’t be for long,” she addedShuba said the main reason for their anger against Syabas is because of its perceived water mismanagement.”Their CEO should step down and allow the state government to take over instead,” she said.Meanwhile, food operators also weighed in with mixed responses on the water supply disruption.

Zainun Hassan and her brother-in-law Abadi Che Loh, who jointly operate a food stall in Kota Damansara, are worried that continued disruption may affect their business.

Hence, they plan to increase their water storage in the coming days, they said.

Syabas’ water disruption notice leads to confusion
Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd’s (Syabas) notice of water disruption across the Klang Valley this week, affecting nearly one million users, has confused users after Syabas issued differing statements to two separate news outlets.A Bernama news report yesterday, quoting Syabas, said the water supply disruption would take place from 8am to 9pm every day, starting today until Dec 22, in order to make way for upgrading and repair works at the Sungai Selangor water treatment plant.
However, a report in Kosmo! newspaper today, which also quoted Syabas personnel, claimed that the water disruption would be continuous from 9pm today until 8am on Dec 22.
Hasmah Daud, 68, a resident at the Rakyat Pantai Dalam condominium, showed the Kosmo! report to Malaysiakini when approached.aa
According to her, she was only rationing water for between 8am to 9pm daily, but said that her house was still having water supply as at 11am.
Malaysiakini contacted Syabas’ customer service centre and was given another different version by a customer service representative.The operator informed Malaysiakini that the 8am to 9pm window was for Syabas to repair the water treatment plant and that the water disruption “can happen anytime”.
For most KL-lites, dry taps are not uncommon

A large number of residents in Kuala Lumpur appear prepared for impending scheduled water supply disruptions, as many of them have already accepted that having dry taps is part and parcel of living in this city.

Visits to Pandan, Ampang, Wangsa Maju and Kuchai Lama this morning revealed that the water supply in these areas were not disrupted yet, but most people interviewed said they were already prepared for it.

“We are used to it,” said Pandan Jaya resident Alex Chan, adding that most residents in the low cost flat that he resides in had already made preparations since the last major disruption in July last year.

“Many of us now own water tanks. We started to fill them up since Syabas issued the notices (four days ago).”

IRATE consumers slam Rozali’s Syabas concessionaire for WATER CUT

PETALING JAYA – Residents in the Klang Valley slammed Syabas for the water cut Tuesday.

“Water cuts cause difficulties for my family as we need to store water and have to fork out more money to buy mineral water for drinking and cooking purposes.


Water distributor Syabas is controlled by Umno tycoon Rozali Ismail, who has frequently been accused of mixing politics with his business duties.

Those who are away at work won’t feel the effect but housewives like me have to change our daily routine,” Taman Kinrara resident Rachel Thangamuthu said.

“One-day water cut is what they (Syabas) usually say but it will get prolonged,” expressed an angry consumer from Shah Alam who did not wish to be named.

He said the water concessionaire must consider the elderly and children before implementing supply disruption for such long hours, adding that consumers in apartments and flats are the most affected as there is not much room to store sufficient water supply.

BN, PR slam Syabas

PETALING JAYA (Dec 16, 2013): “This is nonsense! How can this be?”

This was the response of a fuming Titiwangsa MP Datuk Johari Abdul Ghani to theSun on the water cut scheduled tomorrow by Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) which will affect some one million consumers in the Klang Valley.

“Their reason for not providing water cannot be accepted. They’ve also been given the duty (by the consumers) to ensure proper supply,” he added.

Johari also questioned the water concessionaire’s move to not deploy tankers during the scheduled 13-hour water cut and called on Syabas to justify its actions to consumers.

“How can we live without water for that long? That’s crazy! They should’ve taken into consideration the suffering faced by the public. Also, why must they conduct this ‘routine exercise’ in one go? Is it because there aren’t enough days to complete it, or there aren’t enough funds for it?” he asked.

PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar, who is Lembah Pantai MP, also weighed in with a text message that Syabas “should have shown some professionalism – it gives us little choice other than to seek an alternative water provider”.

Councils to step in if Syabas fails to supply back-up water
Local government councils will step in to help residents who are affected by major water disruption starting tomorrow if Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) fails to provide back-up water supply.The decision was made due to Syabas’s inability to provide back up water supply on many previous occasions, said Teng Chang Khim, the state local government, study and research committee chairperson.“The local authorities are willing to help and get ready with tankers and what they have, but bear in mind that this is not our main duty,” he said, reminding that Syabas has the responsibility to provide back-up water supply to the affected areas.
He said the local governments had agreed to help if Syabas was not able to provide back-up water to the people.“I met the mayors and local council presidents at the standing committee meeting and was briefed on water disruption… All the local councils affected have agreed to help Syabas if it fails to send water to affected areas.“The affected local councils include the Shah Alam City Council, Petaling Jaya City Council, Klang Municipal Council and Subang Jaya Municipal Council.“They can only help, as it is the duty of Syabas to reduce the inconvenience to the minimum,” he said.

Water cut: Some lucky residents may not experience dry taps

PETALING JAYA: Some Klang Valley residents will not experience dry taps at any point during the scheduled water disruption during the 13-hour maintenance work Tuesday at the Selangor River Phase 2 water treatment plant (SSP2) by Puncak Niaga Sdn Bhd if they live close to the reservoirs or are in low-lying areas.

“There are ‘affected’ users who may not experience any disruption at all,” Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) corporate communications and public affairs assistant general manager Priscilla Alfred said.
