W.A.T.E.R Project: Sungai Penchala River Programme - Water Stewardship

More than 90% of our water resources come from the rivers and yet, only 47% of our rivers remain clean. Therefore, the core elements of this programme involve river education and rehabilitation coupled with strategic partnerships with relevant Government agencies and local communities.

The project promotes balancing of water usage for intake and supply through improvement of wastewater, storm water and sullage water management and empowerment of local community.

Under W.A.T.E.R Project – Water Stewardship Agenda, Sungai Penchala River Education Programme (including Sungai Way) will continue from its previous phases while phasing out the Sungai Kinta River Education Programme (by empowering relevant agencies and stakeholders to take charge of their water sources).

In addition, W.A.T.E.R Project: Water Stewardship for Sungai Selangor is added to embark its rehabilitation journey through stakeholders’ empowerment.
