One of the biggest headaches, whenever we have water disruption, is that once the water treatment plant starts working, it takes at least 2 days for the treated water to reach our homes.
The reason for the delay is due to the number of water treatment processes that need to be done before the water can be released to the end consumers. Those homes on hills like mine take even longer due to the lower water pressure. Image source: Dwyer

On 10th November 2020, the State of Selangor experienced another water disruption affecting some 1.1 million accounts making it the 9th water disruption this year alone. This time the suspect is from Indah Water but there is another twist to the story. Image source: Facebook

Seriously I have lost count but once again, someone had polluted the rivers that caused the water supply in Klang Valley to be disrupted again. And once again, the act of polluting the rivers seemed intentional and with little regards to the welfare of thousands of consumers. If it is not considered as malicious sabotage, then what is it then? A sheer recklessness? Image source: NST
