KUALA LUMPUR: Eight areas in Hulu Selangor are expected to experience unscheduled supply disruptions after the Sungai Selisek water treatment plant was forced to shut down today.

Air Selangor, the water supply company, said the Sungai Selisek rose to a critical level at the treatment plant’s intakes after continuous rain forced the plant to be shut down at 5.40pm.

The areas affected by the water supply disruptions are Kampung Sungai Nilam, Kampung Seri Pagi, Kampung Lalang, Rumah Murah PKT 2 Sungai Selisek, Kampung Serigala, Kampung Orang Asli, Kampung Bahom, Kampung Sekolah-Kuarters Klinik and Kampung Gesir Tengah.
