JAKARTA. Private tap water company PT PAM Lyonnaise Jaya (Palyja) will conduct maintenance with state electricity company PLN at a water treatment installation (IPA) in Pejompongan, Central Jakarta, on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., temporarily cutting off its water supply.
Palyja spokesperson Lydia Astriningworo said the water supply would gradually return to normal on Sunday, starting at 5 p.m.
She encouraged all Palyja costumers to fill up their water tanks before the supply is cut.
