‘Sg Muda a shared resource’


Water war: While environmentalists are concerned about land clearing, logging and mining going on in the surrounding forest, both Penang and Kedah are claiming rights over Sungai Muda. — CHAN BOON KAI/The Star

PETALING JAYA: Water from Sungai Muda, which originates from the Greater Ulu Muda Forest, is a shared resource and neither Kedah nor Penang can claim exclusive rights over the river, say conservation groups.

Friends of Ulu Muda (FoUM), a coalition representing various civil society groups from Kedah and Penang, said setting up a Muda River Basin Authority (MRBA) was a “step in the right direction”.
