Langat 2’s costly burden on people

Published: Fri, 24 Feb 2012

SHAH ALAM: Selangor has slammed Putrajaya for pressuring the state to approve the construction of the costly Langat 2 water treatment plant, which processes water channelled from Pahang.

“The RM8 billion can be better spent .... to rehabilitate the Klang River to ensure we’ve unlimited water supply in Selangor,” said Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim  

He said the Pahang-Selangor raw water transfer project would only burden the public and result in water tariff hikes.

“Selangor will have to pay Pahang for the raw water transferred,” said the Menteri Besar on Wednesday.

He said Selangor currently has sufficient raw water sources to cater to demand.

He added that a proper restructuring of the water services industry which the state had attempted to carry out since 2008 would better benefit the public.

“The privatisation and fragmentation of the water services have benefited private companies at the public’s expense,” said Khalid.
