W.A.T.E.R Project: Water Stewardship Agenda

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 to reduce stress on local water resources and ensure watershed security through hard, soft and HEART approach with the outcomes that can be quantified. 

Under W.A.T.E.R Project – Water Stewardship Agenda, Sungai Penchala River Education Programme (including Sungai Way) will be enhanced and continue into Phase 3 while phasing out the Sungai Kinta River Education Programme (by empowering relevant agencies and stakeholders to take charge of their water sources).

In addition, Selangor River is added as one of the project sites along with Penchala River and Sungei Way to embark its rehabilitation journey through stakeholders’ empowerment.
