SPLASH Water Dam

Syarikat Pengeluar Air Sungai Selangor Sdn Bhd, or better known as SPLASH, is the concessionaire appointed by the State Government of Selangor in January 2000 to build, operate and maintain the Sungai Selangor Water Supply Scheme Phase 3 (SSP3). The 30-year SSP3 concession also includes taking over the operation and maintenance of the Sungai Selangor Water Supply Scheme Phase 1 (SSP1). SPLASH also took over the operation and maintenance of the Sungai Tinggi Dam in January 2006.

SPLASH shareholders comprise Gamuda Berhad (40%), The Sweet Water Alliance (30%) and the Selangor Government’s investment arm, Kumpulan Darul Ehsan Berhad (30%). With combined capabilities and expertise, each being well-known names in their own fields and possessing individual strengths, SPLASH has the competitive edge in the water industry.

The Sungai Selangor Dam (SSD) and the Sungai Tinggi Dam (STD) are regulating dams located respectively at the riverheads of Sungai Selangor and Sungai Buloh, major tributaries of Sungai Selangor.

SPLASH is tasked to efficiently manage and regulate the water releases from these two dams to enable sustainable storage and to ensure sufficient quantity of raw water in the river to meet the water treatment plants’ requirements and other functional needs.

With the existence of these regulating dams, during rainy season the rain water would be collected and stored in the dams’ reservoirs instead of wastefully flow to the sea. During dry season, the stored water will be released into Sungai Selangor to augment the flow of the river hence preserve the ecosystem of the river.
