Water rationing ending soon?

| .

According to Sinar Harian, Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim could be making an announcement soon to end water rationing following good news from the Selangor Water Management Authority (LUAS).



Last week, LUAS director Md Khairi Selamat had warned that the water rationing could last for another three months if the water level at the Sg Selangor dam water level stands below the crucial 55 percent of its capacity by the end of April.


Yesterday, Khalid said he received reports from LUAS that the water level has began to rise.


“I will have a meeting with (LUAS) on this coming Friday or next Monday to discuss on the date to end water rationing. The faster the better,” Khalid was quoted saying.


Khalid added that he monitored the situation on the daily basis.


Started in February, the state water rationing exercise is now in its fourth phase early this month and was expected to end by April 30, affecting close to 730,000 households.


Khairi did not discount the possibility that the exercise could go into the fifth gear if the situation does not improve.


Last March, Khalid had insisted to continue with the water rationing plan until water level at dams surpass 65 to 70 percent.
