Media Statement 26 March 2018
Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) urges Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (MPSP), Irrigation and Drainage Department (DID), Health Department of Penang and other authorities to investigate and resolve the problem of polluted ditches that are filled with trash at Jalan Sungai Bakau, near Hon Seng Rice Mill Sdn Bhd.
SAM’s survey here found that the water quality in the ditch has deteriorated and it is foamy, emitting bad odour and filled with trash. The residents nearby here are uncomfortable and concerned of the poor water quality and condition of the ditch due to possible impact to their health. We are also concerned of the foamy waters which may be caused by effluents from commercial premises in the area.Read more
