Fresh leachate (i.e. waste juice) from landfill "farm". It flows straight to Sg Kembong especially during rainy session. This photo was taken in August 2008. The same river had ammonium problem originated from this landfill before (2006?). It caused pollution and degraded the water quality of Semenyeh Dam. So, the authorities never learnt from the previous accident!! Dont they??.
Geotechnical centrifuge has been built at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. The project is funded by Malaysian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. This centrifuge can be used for environmental and geotechnical applications such as migration of pollutants in soils, stability of embankment, earthquake, etc.
