Joint effort needed to clean up river

Published: Fri, 13 Jan 2012

KLANG:  Collaboration between Putrajaya, Selangor and local authorities is needed to rehabilitate Klang River.

Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said a joint effort was necessary because the river flows through Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

“A clean Klang River will also bring future sustainable riverside developments and can even be a tourist attraction,” he said on Tuesday.

The Selangor Menteri Besar was speaking at a seminar on the sustainability of water resources at Premier Hotel here.

The seminar was held to enable local councils and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to seek ways to conserve rivers.

“Rivers should be well-conserved because they are an important source of water for us,” said Khalid.

He urged local councils, councillors and NGOs to work together.

“I hope all participants will share ideas and discuss ways to conserve our water resources,” said  Klang Municipal Council  (MPK) acting president Ikhsan Mukri.
