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

    OMG! .....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

    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.
