Jakartans were called on to prepare for disruptions to their water supply on Thursday, caused by technical work set to be carried out by PT PAM Lyonnaise Jaya (Palyja), the water supplier for the western part of Jakarta.

Palyja, teaming up with state-owned electricity firm PLN, will conduct technical work on water treatment installation Pejompongan 2 in Central Jakarta, according to a press statement received by The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.

The work is slated to take place on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

However, services are expected to be impacted until 2 a.m. Friday.

“Palyja calls on all customers to fill their water tanks and use water efficiently in anticipation of the disruption,” said Palyja’s spokeswoman, Lydia Astriningworo.

According to the statement, the company will provide its customers with water tanks for emergency. Should customers have any inquiries or problems, they are advised to call Palyja on its hotline at 021-2997-9999.
