Bishan canal left dirty and choked since clean-up more than a year ago

Bishan canal left dirty and choked since clean-up more than a year ago
STOMPer Still Agitated Singaporean is disappointed that this canal at Bishan Park, which was cleared up once more than a year ago, is choked again today.

The same STOMPer highlighted how dirty it was more than a year ago and the problem was promptly solved.
Much to his dismay, the canal is now choked again.

Says STOMPer Still Agitated Singaporean in an email dated June 13:

"I have once sent a message through STOMP to have the authority work on this.

"Now the canal is back in a sorry state.

"This is a photo taken a few minutes ago. I presume all the resources are now being drawn into cleaning up hawker centres."

It is very common to see this stretch of canal getting choked, due to the Marina Barrage. I can't imagine that this is part of the extensive canal and river networks of the Kallang Marina Reservoir. How good will the quality of the water from this urban reservoir be?
