Bishan Park Canal polluted with paint by nearby condominium

STOMPer Tan is irked to find out that paint has been dumped into Bishan Park canal.

Said the STOMPer:

"It looks like has been dumped into Bishan Park canal.

"I think it was from the Garden condominium."

It seems like this particular stretch of Sungei Kallang keeps getting polluted; this is the fifth submission to STOMP in the last 2 months. I suppose it goes to show just how much more work needs to be done to emphasis preventive measures to prevent chemicals running off into our drains and canals, and to clamp down on those who fail to adopt such measures, and negligently allow pollutants to enter our waterways.
