MUAR: The Johor government will make some changes to the existing Sungai Skudai Water Blueprint 2014-2015 to improve the conservation works on the river.
State Health and Environment Committee chairman Datuk Ayub Rahmat said the blueprint was now being fine-tuned as the government realised that there were some areas that needed improvements in order to ensure the success of the project.
“We are looking for the right methods to make improvements on the existing blueprint and to overcome the problems where our water sources at several rivers cannot be utilised to solve the water crisis in Johor,” he said after officiating the Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital (SFSH) Emergency and Trauma Department Triage building here recently.
Also present were SFSH director Dr Salehudden Abd Aziz and SFSH Emergency and Trauma Department chief Dr Norhaya Abdullah.
Ayub added that the responsibility of maintaining the cleanliness of rivers should not only be borne by the state government but instead should be shared between the state government and the surrounding communities. – Bernama
