Love our river campaign, but raw sewage being dumped into river!
If you drive over the elevated highway from Ampang heading for, say KLCC and before you reach the toll plaza you will be greeted with a hazardous pong, a smell that can even penetrate a well sealed posh cars that Malaysians are fond of showing off!
The smell came from a sewerage treatment pond that apparently has gone busted and now being diverted into the Klang river.
In spite of our economic take off status we still dump our shit into the river and this can pose serious health hazard. Why the Ampang Municipal Council (MPAJ) did not act to arrest the problem is beyond my understanding.
Forget about the government of the day, if our state of health is compromised we might as well close shop as a developing country when we cannot even manage the disposal of our shit! MPAJ please take note that people in Ampang are not happy!
