    For those of us who are curious about the status of our dams, I was told that, apparently, SYABAS has barred people (including the ADUNs from Selangor) from entering its water catchment areas to have a look see. For forumers like Ivanhow who are thinking of visiting these dams, SYABAS has effectively shut the door on curious citizens. I think you can still view the Ulu Langat catchment area from the road as you take a drive past the area. Some RELA people may be stationed there to thwart your inquisitive prying eyes.

    I think Syabas owner ( who is also Selangor UMNO treasurer !! ) is in panic-mode, I bet they did not count on Selangor MB calling their bluff and threaten to invoke Clause 32 of the water agreement and seize the operations back ....

    If Syabas say treated water is not enough due to lack of processing capacity TODAY, but ALL problems solved IF they get a Langat-2 treatment plant that is only available 2014 if they build .... WHAT STUPID NONSENSE is this ???

    Want to con people also USE SOME COMMON SENSE lah ... I may get a banana for saying this but here goes ... BUNCH OF STUPID IDIOTS !!!

    Its out in the open and when they say that the dry season is expected till sept and some more get the flers at the meteriological department to say it does not confer any truth to the statement when we are stuck in jams because of the rain pouring all around us. They think we are stupid or what???

    Of course, they have been thinking for half a century that people are stupid...

    If they win majorityy in the next GE, they will continue to think people are stupid for another 5 years...

    This just about confirms than SYABAS is lying.

    BTW does anyone knows what is the role of JBAS, PUAS, LUAS, Puncak Niaga, SYABAS and other various alphabet soup agencies.

    SYABAS skali, semuanya OK dan PUAS, di mana keuntungan NIAGA mesti di PUNCAK, di mana lindungan air dlm perniagaan ini cukup LUAS, dan di Jalan secara beBAS dgn penuh sumbangan di atas.

    I've taken quite a lot of DIY steps to reduce my water consumption, NOT BECAUSE I INSIST TO SAVE MONEY but I think it makes me feel good.
    1. Adjust the ball valve in toilet cistern for lower level and less water flushed. Its frequently occurred to me a decent sized toilet cistern holds at least 4 gallons of water, each time you flush, its 4 gallons DOWN THE HATCH! Imagine how many times it can be used during a day.
    2. Periodic check on main water tank to ensure its fully fit and no leaks from ball valve. Leaky ball valve will cause the tank to overflow and dump the excess. Adjustment of ball valve level DOES NOT make a difference in consumption. Its THE OTHER END where you turn on that dictate the flow and consumption.
    3. Educate oneself to reduce the tap pressure when doing washing chores in kitchen...plates, utensils..those sorts.
    4. Don't water the plants too often. Just too bad, have to self ration to plants.. Sorry plants..
    5. Don't wash your car too often with hosed water supply, wash the car limiting to a couple of buckets of water.
    6. Take shorter time baths, use just sufficient water.
    7. Washing machine.. about time you think about washing machines that are more efficient and save water.
    8. Its imperative all those industries above make every effort to check and maintain their water systems to prevent waste. This is NOT just during some crisis but a moral responsibility at all times.
    I really loath seeing leaky taps and burst pipes anywhere.
    Just a few tips.
    a few more tips here:
    i) i dun think we really need all that 4 gallons of water in toilet cistern to flush your excrement, unless it's really stuck then u need a plumber not more water, so to reduce the volume you can place sinkable object (i.e. brick, filled mineral bottle etc) inside the toilet cistern x 3, it will not make you rich but at least you accumulate more karma + help to save more water
    ii)install toilet bidet ( not that expensive if DIY < rm100) greatly reduce toilet paper usage and save at least 90% of water you use to clean up with scoop or what not, it's also more hygienic + reduce bladder infection
    iii)collect rain water and use them to wash your car porch and to water your plant

    This water problem has now convoluted into a legal tussle between the Federal and the State, and possibly involving the AG and the rakyat of Selangor.
    Reports Bernama

    It was reported in Malaysia Chronicles, "Muhyiddin also said that the federal government will go ahead with the Langat 2 project even if the Selangor state government does not agree to it." It was also reported that he said, "..opposition-led Selangor state government would not be able to go ahead with its plan according to Clause 32 of the water concession agreement.." Walau-eh, This is a Federal power in action.

    Do you think a referendum to decide whether the State shud take over SYABAS shud be held?

    According to theEdge, "Klang MP Charles Santiago said that the water issue was essentially about the right to information as Syabas held a monopoly over the information of water produced and supplied."

    Your tip above can be doable IF collection of rainwater have a certain consistency in collection quantity throughout the year.
    If you can collect sufficient, install another water tank, fill up by pumping the collected water to this tank, then all pipes from this tank is routed to car porch and what every purpose you deem useable. You may have to filter the water on the way up to the tank. Bearing in mind, this water tank is now an alternative supply. Whether all this would justify and have savings, you'd have to do your own arithmetic.

    you need a big catchment area, just placing a tank would not cut it. maybe couple of tank, then it may be possible, but do you that amount of space?
