Cause for concern: The hill with its bare rock top and slope can be seen above houses in Taman Intan Delima, which is near Kampung Masjid, Batu Kawan. (Inset) Abdul Halim says soil erosion is another worry for the villagers.

NIBONG TEBAL: Villagers claim that quarrying and hillslope earthworks by the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) near Kampung Masjid here are making life miserable for them.

They complain that the works are causing the walls of their homes to crack and driving wild animals from the hill into their village.
