The Selangor water industry will see the operations takeover and maintenance of water treatment facilities as well to increase the capacity of the facilities by using the latest technology.
KUALA LUMPUR, July 10, 2015:
A supplemental agreement for restructuring and consolidation of the Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya water services industry was signed at the Deputy Prime Minister’s office today.
The signing of the supplementary agreement to the master agreement, dated Sept 12 last year, follows the conclusion of the Selangor state government’s negotiations with the government.
In a statement today, Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali said the state government, via its wholly-owned water company Air Selangor, will restructure and consolidate the water services industry to ensure the provision of efficient, value for money and holistic water services from treatment to distribution of water supply to consumers.
“Once the take-over and consolidation of the private water concession companies under state-owned entity Air Selangor is completed, all efforts will be focused on further improving the water treatment and distribution systems as well the overall water supply services.
“The journey begins now to further improve the overall water services, to reduce the Non-Revenue Water (NRW) and more critically to ensure sufficient water supply to consumers,” said Azmin.
Azmin also said that the Selangor water industry will see the operations takeover and maintenance of water treatment facilities as well to increase the capacity of the facilities by using the latest technology.
The Federal Government and state government together with Pengurusan Aset Air Berhad (PAAB) and Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) had previously signed the master agreement as part of the efforts to restructure and consolidate the water supply services in Selangor and the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
