‘We have endured swine manure issue for 40 years’ – Resident

TASEK GELUGOR”We have endured this issue for 40 years,” said a resident of Kampung Air Melintas Kecil here whose life has been affected by the swine manure dumped into the river from pig farms in Kampung Selamat nearby.

Yusof Othman, 65, said other villages along the river were also affected.

“It can be said this swine manure originates from Kampung Selamat where pig farms are located, which then leads into Sungai Kreh in this village right up to Kampung Air Hitam (Butterworth), about 12km from our village,” he told reporters when met at the dumping site here today.
