Two STOMPers, VongolaPrimo and Alex, found oil slicks in canals around East Coast Park and near Singapore Expo, which could be caused by the oil spill after the collision between an oil tanker and a bulk carrier in the waters off Singapore's east coast on May 25.
STOMPer VongolaPrimo hopes that the authorities will clean up the pollution at East Coast as soon as possible. The STOMPer spotted oil slicks in the canals around East Coast Park.
The oil slicks in the canal may be the result of the oil spill after the May 25 collision between an oil tanker and a bulk carrier in the waters off Singapore's east coast. By late afternoon on the same day, the oil had spread from the SAF Yacht Club next to the Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, all the way to the chalets in East Coast Park.
In the STOMPer's report:
"We were walking around at East Coast Park, and my friends saw oil in the canal!
"This is rubbish! How could they do this to the nature!
"They should clear the oil away as soon as possible!"
STOMPer Alex saw oil slicks in a canal near Singapore Expo. He said:
"These photos taken yesterday (May 27) at noon near Singapore Expo next to ITE College East.
"We need more volunteers rather than simply depend on the NEA to do the cleaning job."
