THE Kuala Langat District Council (MDKL) should use the large lake next to South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE), near Saujana Putra toll plaza, for water sports.
The lake is large and deep enough to accommodate various water sports.
Nearby, earthworks and development are taking place which could pollute the lake, making it expensive to clean in the future.
Surely, the lake will not be filled as the cost of dumping earth and levelling it will be enormous and does not justify the big expenditure.
The lake might be a dumping ground for construction debris and rubbish if not controlled.
Now is the best time to do something before residents from nearby housing estates move in and start renovations.
It is likely they might dump leftover construction materials and debris into the lake.
The lake appears to be a former tin mine and if it is converted for recreational activities, it will benefit the residents of Subang Jaya, Shah Alam and nearby areas.
It could be an asset for MDKL, which could join forces with the residential and commercial developers nearby to finance the recreational project.
The Kundang lake in Rawang also sits on a former mining land, and Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) took great efforts to make it an attractive recreational site that draws thousands during weekends and holidays.
