Ground Water Quality Status

Marine and Water Quality Monitoring

Malaysia is endowed with many islands, coastal areas and seas whose marine   environment   is   generally   rich   in aquatic resources.    The  quality  of  marine  waters plays  an  important  role  in  the  conservation  of these resources. The Department of Environment (DOE) started its monitoring programme in 1978 for Peninsular Malaysia. In 1985, the monitoring programme extended to […]

Marine Water Quality Status

A total of 1,035 samples from 229 monitoring stations were analysed in 2006 (Table 5.3). As in previous years, the main contaminants of the coastal waters of all States that exceeded the IMWQS were total suspended solids (75%), Escherichia coli (55%) and oil and grease (35%). Figure 5.1 shows the trend of marine water quality contaminants from 2004 to […]

Stop River Pollution

River Water Pollution Sources

Water pollution is caused by point and non-point sources. Point sources include sewage treatment plants, manufacturing and agro-based industries and animal farms. Non-point sources are defined as diffused sources such as agricultural activities and surface runoffs. In 2006, the Department of Environment (DOE) registered 18,956 water pollution point sources comprising mainly sewage treatment plants (9,060 […]

River Water Quality Monitoring

The Department of Environment (DOE ) has been conducting monitoring of river since 1978, primarily to establish baselines and to detect water quality changes in river water quality and has since been extended to identifying of pollution sources as well. A total of 1,064 manual stations located within 143 river basins through out Malaysia. Water […]

The Planning Guidelines For Environmental Noise Limits and Control

Introduction to River Water Quality Status

In 2007, the number of river basin monitored was reduced from 146 to 143. This was due to the merging of three (3) river basins which are located close to each other. It was found that Lembangan Linggi in Malacca is actually linked to Lembangan Linggi in Negeri Sembilan; Lembangan Pontian in Johor merged with […]
