Is Klang Gates Dam Severely Affected? - Here's Proof!

Klang Gates Dam - The walls of the dam is on the left middle of the pic.
The Star (March 19) today reported, "The water level at seven dams in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya is dwindling, affected by the warm weather and dry spell for the past two months.
They are the Sungai Selangor, Sungai Tinggi, Semenyih, Sungai Langat, Klang Gates, Tasik Subang and Sungai Batu dams.
A statement from Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) yesterday said the more severely affected ones were Tasik Subang, Klang Gates and Sungai Langat due to low rainfall in the water catchment areas."
I was up to the number "8" station of the Bukit Tabur just one week ago. Bukit Tabur overlooks the Klang Gates dam. The picture was taken 7 days ago and offers a view of Klang Gates reservoir in all its watery glory. There was a receding waterline as the light colour sand are exposed. But it is not that bad to my layman's eye then.
