Canal at Ulu Pandan Park Connector polluted and filled with rubbish

 Canal at Ulu Pandan Park Connector polluted and filled with rubbish
STOMPer shutterbug is alarmed by the state of this canal at Ulu Pandan Park Connector, which is polluted and filled with rubbish.

This STOMPer says:

"These pictures were taken at the Ulu Pandan Park Connector near the Toh Guan Flyover.

"The water in the canal has assumed a rainbow colour, possibly due to the oil and other pollution causing substances discharged by some of the factories nearby. The image of the building is reflected in the water.

"The canal looks filthy with discarded plastic bags, cups, drink cans and other debris. The water here flows into Sungei Pandan."

It's quite ironic that there is a water reclamation plant just nearby that supplies industrial water and NEWater. When will people ever learn that the responsibility of maintaining the cleanliness of our waterways falls upon all of us? We tend to take for granted the fact that the water that flows from our taps is clean enough to drink, but we seem so myopic that we're unable to realise just how irresponsible disposal of rubbish and other wastes can affect our own water supply.
