Lets get this straight and for some who still don't understand.
1) RAW WATER comes from rain and contained in big lakes or dammed lake. WATER IS RAW..unfit for daily consumption.
2) Water treatment plant filter and treat the raw water only then sold to consumer, THAT IS WHAT get to your tap.

Trouble is from the Water treatment plant to all the infrastructure, pipes, valves, distribution system where prone to all sorts of issues from insufficient capacity to treat water for high demand, then stoppage for various maintenance or works.
So it doesn't mean you have 100 inches of rain everyday, and your water supply is forever consistent.
There's NO irony!

I've been "dry" ;).....since midday Sunday.....some surrounding areas [with shops] have started getting water since this morning, but Im still dry :eek:

Puspel's Twitter Update has been 'on the blink' since 11th following the announcement....the link to the Facebook Page regarding it 'unavailable'......some comments that calls are going unanswered [Gee....Wasn't I here before??]........back then [during previous water crisis]....some of our Reps were updating their voters on current status.....Not anymore, but our new MB is on top of it! :(


Meanwhile...."MB cracks whip" >>Read Here<< (http://goo.gl/n0ylDW)

"calling for an emergency meeting with water distribution firms and local councils after a diesel spill at three water treatment plants yesterday disrupted water supply" [read that again - spill at 3 not 1] ;)

"I want stern action to be taken against those responsible for the diesel contamination at the affected treatment plants, Azmin said on his Facebook page"

Says..."Please tweet immediately if there are any areas that face any water supply disruption. I will be monitoring it myself and will deal with Syabas, Azmin added.

So do your part >>>> https://twitter.com/AzminAli

Meanwhile.....remember to pay your water bill. :)
Syabas launches operation on outstanding bills (http://www.mysinchew.com/node/102379?tid=4)

Thumbs up to our new MB!......your Rakyat is 'Getting To Know You'.....so are others ;)

U dont need to be a Sherlock Holmes-wannabe or an avid fan of CSI or even a half-trained special branch spy to come to the same conclusion as ...ME!:p

Yep....I thought I read the earlier report as 7 locations too....

OMG! :eek:.....You think there is something 'sinister' amiss?

And here I was thinking maybe it was someone upset that diesel went up in price and chose to protest by dumping it ;).......How silly of me to think our folks were behaving like them French farmers recently :heheheh:


Still no supply over here. :(

Maybe you are one of those on "higher ground" ;).....they will only get supply in 2-3 days time :eek:

Moral of the story: "The Higher You Are, The Longer It Takes" :heheheh:

We in USJ get our water supply from the Semenyih Dam and therefore should not have been affected by the closing down of the water treatment plants that were suppying water from the Sg Selangor Dam to other parts of the Petaling District which happens to include Subang Jaya.

I didn't smell diesel but either a fish or even a rat. From the ADUN's office, I received a SMS from YB Hannah Yeoh sent to her by Syabas saying they are doing a "emergency work" at the Semenyih Dam and therefore have to cut off our supply. Syabas can't even say when water will flow again. They just said "Tomorrow." Meantime, all of us have to suffer as we were all taken by surprise of this unscheduled cut. Tupai is scratching his head over "3 or was it 7 different locations with contaminant spillage? all at the same time" while I am scratching my balls how the 2 dams so far apart are affecting us big time.

Please don't forget to flush your water filters. A lot of mud came together with the initial resumed water supply. ;-)

Rakyat sort of accepted all sorts of excuses given by the government for water shortage problems. I wonder if UMNO is not the one governing this country, do we have to face this shortage problem? Does Singapore facing this kind of problem regularly?

It's been 5 days.

Never experienced water cut before.

However,11 years ago there was a major power outage in Singapore in 2004. The energy company, Senoko Power Plant was fined $1 million by Singapore Energy Market Authority (EMA). The power outage lasted for 2 hours.

Following is the penalty structure imposed by EMA to energy supply company.

$1 million fine for blackouts affecting area the size of a housing board estate.
The penalty rises to $2 million for the third and subsequent occurrences within a year.
A $50,000 fine is imposed for blackouts affecting a few blocks of flats. This rises to $100,000 for the third and subsequent incident occurring in a month.
Companies also face additional fines of $50,000 if power is not restored within 3 hours.

While I was in Seoul 2011, The Minister in charge of power resigned over a power outrage. This is taking responsibility.

I don't really know why Hong Kong people go on the streets, but here, problem like this, in Klang Valley, the richest state, in 2014. The government let the rakyat suffering from a basic need like this, they have no urgency, not concern, you can complain, and complains, log reports, and

you just have to wait!

I wonder what happen if this is Hong Kong, as if two months of water rationing is not big enough a lesson!

Sometimes, you can't blame people from taking up on the streets!

You can log report, you can complain, but wait lah!

I told them, if twin tower so high also they can supply water, there must be something can be done for a lower area. The only reason it can not be done is they don't really care.
