SEMENYIH’s Water Treatment Plant contamination : Areas affected

Posted on September 7, 2010


The Semenyih water treatment plant has been closed down since 1.40am on Tuesday morning following river contamination from a nearby landfill. Raw water from Sungai Kembong in Selangor was contaminated due to “lechate” leaking from a breached dyke in the landfill.
Syabas said ” The plant was closed immediately upon detecting high content of ammonia in the water at 6.41mg per litre, which is above the health safety standard of 1.5mg per litre, put into place by the Health Ministry”. It is estimated 1.2 million people are affected by this problem.
