Water at Jurong Port canal turns blue because of pollution

 Water at Jurong Port canal turns blue because of pollution
Two STOMPers have separately reported the strange blue water at this canal near the Jurong Port Road exit of the Ayer Rajah Expressway.

STOMPer Steve66rs saw this yesterday afternoon and he thinks that industrial leakage may have caused this.

In an email sent to STOMP today (Feb 26), STOMPer said:

"Does NEA check these canals in the industrial areas?

"I was surprised to see that the water in the canal beside the petrol kiosk had turned blue.

"I think an industrial leakage may have led to this."

Yesterday (Feb 25), STOMPer Haojie reported:

"Saw this at about 1 pm today while walking back from lunch today at Corporation Place.

"Looks like some kind of chemical."
