Sungai Selangor Dam
Commissioned by the Selangor State Government, the dam regulates water from Sungai Selangor and works in tandem with water treatment plants to provide water to Selangor and the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
While Malaysia may be blessed with a relatively high amount of rainfall, storing rain for the dry days through dams is still necessary as rainfall is not evenly distributed throughout the year.
Gamuda clinched the job to ensure water supply security to more than seven million residents living in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya through the construction of Sungai Selangor Dam. The Selangor Dam acts as a regulating dam to store water from a pristine tropical forest catchment.
Collectively called Phase 3 of the Sungai Selangor Water Supply Scheme (SSP3), the project entailed the design and construction of a 110-metre rock-filled regulating dam with storage capacity of 235 million cubic metres, river intake works, pipelines and two water treatment plants - one in Rasa and other in Bukit Badong.
Gamuda's total water concessions provide 2,000 million litres per day of potable water.
