Flood Detritus


ipoh echo issue 139, Sungai Pari floods 2012Lorry loads of garbage was removed from the Sungai Pari bridge in Jalan Raja after the recent floods. However, rubbish is hanging from the bottom of the bridge and some touch the water. During heavy rain when the level of the water rises to the bottom of the bridge, the rubbish restricts the flow of debris along the river. I am not going to blame MBI workers for not removing this, because it cannot be seen from the top of the bridge, but can be seen clearly from my house. The rubbish must be removed before they start to pile up. I do not want my house to be flooded again.
