With water disruptions taking place so often in the Klang Valley, are we even surprised when authorities find yet another reason to cut our water source again?

Police have received a report about odour pollution due to oil spills in the riverbed near Jalan KB1/10 in Kampung Baru Balakong, Kajang, reported Astro Awani.

Head of the Selangor Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Datuk Fadzil Ahmat, said the report was made by an officer of the Selangor Department of Environment (DOE) on 27 October.

“The complainant made an inspection in the area and found that black oil was floating on the surface of the waterway from the residential area to the river and suspected it was an act of sabotage,” he said.

“JSJ Selangor has gone to the scene with three other agencies, namely the National Service Commission (SPAN), Selangor Water Management Board (LUAS) and Indah Water Konsortium (IWK).”

“Several samples of oil mixed with water were taken to test the contents for investigation and prosecution.”

Fadzil added that the case is now being investigated by JSJ Selangor under Section 430 of the Penal Code.

When asked if there would be another water cut, Air Selangor responded with a short statement on Twitter saying,

“Please refer to the Air Selangor application and all Air Selangor official social media channels including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and our website at http://airselangor.com to get information on the latest water supply info. Thank you.”

Meanwhile, Fadzil also commented on the water issue that took place on 20 October, saying that JSJ Selangor held a meeting with several enforcement agencies to discuss the matter.

“We agree to conduct investigations and actions in an integrated manner to ensure that enforcement, investigation and prosecution can be made as a whole, for the benefit and welfare of the people of Selangor in particular,” he said
