Sg Kembong Landfill

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??.
