As Sunway City Kuala Lumpur’s lakes remain a reliable source of water, a plant was built to treat water from the South Quay lake for all Sunway’s commercial assets including Sunway University. The water is treated using a hybrid of ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis processes to meet the quality standards of potable drinking water. The water treatment plant can operate at a full capacity of 8.5 million litres per day. Based on the World Health Organisation’s recommendation of 165 litres per person per day, this amount is sufficient to serve water consumption needs of about 51,500 people.
