Air Itam, Tanjung Bungah, Batu Ferringhi, and Teluk Bahang will not be affected as these areas get water supply from the Air Itam Dam and Teluk Bahang Dam.

Water supply is expected to resume within 48 hours in areas closest to the water treatment plant while other areas may get supply resumption within 72 hours and end-of-the-line areas in 96 hours.
