Even with the shock of the Kim Kim River incident in Johor still present, another blatant misuse of our rivers has already become a cause for concern as it went viral on Twitter.

With some 2.43 tonnes of toxic waste being collected from the Kim Kim River (at the time of writing), you’d think that people would be a bit more mindful of dumping anything into rivers for now.

But that is not the case.

A netizen took to Twitter sharing a video taken of what is believed to be happening at Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur.

The 44-second video showed a steady stream of dark matter being  released into the river — a clear case of questionable waste management practice.

The tweet writes, “Take a look on how waste materials flow directly into our rivers.”

The tweet tagged both Seputeh MP Teresa Kok and Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad seeking their attention on the matter.

“We can’t afford to have another Pasir Gudang again.”

This being a case of “too little too late (Sudah terhantuk baru terngadah)”, Malaysians either have short-term memory loss or don’t seem to care that our environment is being destroyed.

The river itself changed from Teh Tarik to Kopi Gao in colour in less than two hours.

Concerned with the lack of responsibility on the part of the culprit, netizen commenting on the post shared the hotline for Environmental Department or Jabatan Alam Sekitar (JAS).

It is the time that we too do our part by reporting activities that we feel may be hazardous to not just the environment but the livelihood of fellow Malaysians.

Do our part, so that we can avoid another tragedy like the Kim Kim River tragedy from repeating itself.
