Bills not paid, so water supply to condominium cut

03/03/2009 The Star

RESIDENTS of Flora Damansara, Petaling Jaya, were without water since Sunday after Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor (Syabas) cut off supply to the condominium.

Many people were seen carrying buckets and containers to the car park on the second floor to collect water from the fire hose.

According to resident Azman Shah Mohamad, residents were told that the water supply had been disconnected because the condominium management had not been paying the Syabas bills.

Dire straits: Residents from Flora Damansara in Damansara Perdana, Petaling Jaya, collecting water from the fire hose in the car park.

“Some of us have paid our bills so it is unfair. Many residents are unwilling to pay their maintenance bills because the condominium is not properly maintained,” he said.

Water to Block D, E, F and H were cut but Block A and B still had supply.

Flora Damansara Joint Management Body (JMB) chairman Ho Fook Chuan said the JMB took over the management of the condominium in October and had been trying to get record of payments from the management.

“They haven’t been cooperating so we can’t even collect arrears because we don’t know who owes what,” said Ho.

Syabas corporate communications and public affairs general manager Abdul Halem Mat Som said the arrears for Flora Damansara had accumulated to almost RM400,000 since July last year.

“The management of the condominium said they would pay the arrears in instalments but we have not been receiving it regularly.” said Abdul Halem.

He added that Syabas had placed a static tank and water tanker at the surau of the condominium so that residents could collect water for their daily use.

Attempts to contact the building management office were unsuccessful at press time.
