Another Day, Another Water Cut

another day, another water cut

Worrisome news for Malaysians yesterday (October 18th), as we recorded our highest-ever daily tally for new COVID-19 cases - 871.

And for Selangor residents, the pandemic is only one of many things on their list of problems, as water woes continue.

Air Selangor has once again released news of water pollution, which was detected early this morning (October 19th) at 2:00am.

This unscheduled water cut affects several areas, including Kuala Lumpur, Petaling, Klang, Kuala Selangor, Hulu Selangor, Gombak and Kuala Langat.

And yes, today’s incident is a completely different incident from that of two days ago, when Air Selangor announced it’s conducting pipeworks.

It’s unclear just how long this water cut is going to last, and if Saturday’s pipeworks will affect it, but here’s the latest update on that:

Let’s hope Air Selangor will get the water running again sooner rather than later…
