“In fact, the entire 1.5km stretch of Sungai Kim Kim that was contaminated before this has been declared safe.

“The cleaning work by the contractors that started on March 13 and ended on March 17 saw a total of 900 tonnes of contaminated substance and 1,500 metric tons of contaminated water cleared,” Yeo told a press conference at Sungai Kim Kim’s main pollution site in Taman Pasir Puteh.
