Final Report of the consultation work for NAHRIM

UKM Pakarunding (UKMP) was appointed as a consultant by National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia (NAHRIM) to conduct a Desktop Study on Groundwater Contamination at Landfill Sites in Selangor. A total of 20 landfills have been identified in Selangor but only 17 were investigated in this study. The other three landfills are too small and no longer operating. From the 17 landfills, 7 landfills are still in operation while the others were either abandoned or closed. Regardless of the current status of these landfills, they pose significant environmental problems and threats especially to the groundwater system in this state. Photo shows the final reports that were completed and already submitted to NAHRIM. Other consultants of the project were Prof Raihan Taha, Prof Rahim Samsudin, Mr Jasni and myself as a project leader.
