The Chairman of Wetlands International Malaysia council, Dato’ Paduka Ir. (Dr.) Hj. Keizrul bin Abdullah, was interviewed on MHI TV3 recently in response to the recent water crisis in the Klang Valley.  Four water processing plants had to be temporarily shut down and approximately 5 million people were affected.  The problem was caused by pollution from substance discharged into the Selangor river, which is one of the main water source for the residents of the Klang Valley.  He gave his views on how to manage and improve the water supply.

The first point he mentioned is to tackle the problem at the source.   Also he said the issue needs to be studied and improved under 4 aspects:

i) Pollution
ii) Surveillance
iii) Enforcement
iv) Current system in place
