SHAH ALAM (Dec 7): The State government and the Federal government will be collaborating in the development of Sungai Rassau water treatment plant (WTP) involving the implementation of source work at the upstream before entering the inlet.
Selangor Infrastructure, Public Amenities, Agricultural Modernisation and Agro-based Industry Committee chairman Izham Hashim said the work was among the areas which should be implemented apart from design work and awarding tender to the contractor.
