Flush away the problem

Big plans are ahead to reduce sewage contamination in Sungai Klang.

EFFLUENT from sewage treatment plants has been singled out as a major river polluter. Just by sheer numbers alone, sewage treatment plants make up 49% (10,025 facilities) of the total number of water pollution sources found in the country.

In comparison, manufacturing industries make up 44.5% (9,069 sources), according to the Environmental Quality Report 2010 by the Department of Environment.

Lake of filth: The Sri Johor flood detention pond in Bandar Tasik Permaisuri in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, not only holds excess water, but plenty of trash, too.

Saving Sungai Klang

By TAN CHENG LI star2green@thestar.com.my

The use of ‘soft rocks’ — heavy-duty geo-textile bags filled with sand and weighing two tonnes each — to protect the banks of Sungai Kerayong create a more natural riverine environment as plants can grow on them.

Long treated like a sewer rather than a river, can Sungai Klang be revived?

BY NOW, many people would have noticed that something is up in several rivers within the Klang Valley. In Ulu Klang, shady trees that line Sungai Klang have been sacrificed for slope protection works. Where Sungai Kerayong flows through Cheras, a water treatment plant is under construction. In Selayang, the banks of Sungai Gombak have been beautified.

Public Forum: “Perubahan Iklim-Kaitannya dengan PBT & Komuniti”

Perubahan Iklim merupakan cabaran paling sengit yang dihadapi oleh Dunia, Negara, Bandar dan komuniti pada masa kini. Impak perubahan iklim tidak terhad kepada tempatan saja namun seluruh warga Dunia akan menghadapi cabaran dan ancamannya yang sama, samada sekarang ataupun pada masa akan kelak. Perubahan Iklim telah melihatkan kenaikan haba dunia, peningkatan paras air laut, kehilangan warisan semulajadi dan sejarah dan lain yang mengubah gaya hidup dan kualiti persekitaran petempatan. Apakah perubahan iklim ini dan impak susulan akan menjejaskan perbandaran di Malaysia terutamanya wilayah Lembah Klang? Adakah kita memahami dan menyedari bahawa perubahan telah dan akan terus berlaku menjejaskan komuniti kita? Bagi menghadapi cabaran tersebut, apakah yang boleh PBT mahupun komuniti lakukan?
