Minister of Environment and Water Visits Langat Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant   

MMC Pembetungan Langat Sdn Bhd (MMC PLSB), a member of MMC Group, received a visit by the Minister of Environment and Water, YB Dato’ Tuan Ibrahim bin Tuan Man accompanied by the ministry’s officials to Langat Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant (CSTP). Located at Kampung Sungai Balak, the physical construction of Langat CSTP is at 98% completion.

YB Dato’ Tuan Ibrahim bin Tuan Man and his delegation were welcomed by Ir Ahmad Rozian Othman, Deputy Director General of Sewerage Services Department and Mohd Abdul Fatah Endut, Project Director of MMC PLSB. The delegation then was briefed on the current progress of the construction before proceeded for a visit to the Administration Building and Maintenance Floor of the plant.

The Langat CSTP is standing at 7.3 hectares equivalent to 58 Olympic-size swimming pools which will feature sports centre consists of 16 badminton courts, two futsal courts and two sepak takraw courts at the upper floor. This is part of Government’s initiative to change the public perception on smelly odor often associated with treatment plant as it combines underground wastewater processes and community facilities such as multipurpose hall that can house 200 people and a playground for surrounding community.

Supervised by Sewerage Service Department under the Ministry of Environment & Water, the Langat Sewerage Project is a concentrated effort to mitigate occasional water supply disruptions due to pollution in water source believed to be caused by many; such as industrial discharges and poorly treated effluents from the existing sewage treatment plants due to rapid urban development in Cheras and Kajang area.

MMC PLSB has been awarded with the project in 2014 to consolidate three separate regional plants into one centralised plant in Langat catchment areas that can serve up to 920,000 Population Equivalent and upgrading sewer pipeline of 108 kilometres as well as upgrading two existing pump stations and building nine new pump stations. The construction work tentatively will be completed by 2020 before entering Operation and Maintenance phase.
