By JOSEPH SIPALAN
PUTRAJAYA: Water supply is expected to be restored fully by Saturday in Gombak and several areas in Kuala Lumpur affected by a breakdown at the Wangsa Maju pump station, said Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui.
He said water concessionaire Syabas has been working on installing bypass pipes since Jan 8 with work expected to be completed in five days.
“On Jan 2, my Ministry had asked Syabas to present a technical proposal to make sure water supply can be restored to all consumers immediately.
“The proposal which involves the installation of bypass pipes was also discussed with representatives from the Selangor state government and approved by the National Water Services Commission (SPAN) on Jan 7,” he said in a statement Friday.
