MCA: Selangor water crisis will reach critical mass in two months’ time
KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 — The water situation in Selangor will reach critical mass in two months’ time, said MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek today after being briefed by water experts, professionals and non-government organisations, who asked to remain anonymous.
Chua (picture) said that in 2008, these same specialists had predicted that within five years, there would be a water shortage in Selangor based on the population growth, increased consumption and the processing ability of the state’s 34 water treatment facilities.
“In the last four years, there has been no significant capital expenditure by the state government to repair and upgrade the existing 34 plants,” he added.
