Water pollution? Yellowish liquid spotted in Loyang industrial estate's drainage
A spokesperson for NEA has said that the company responsible for the yellow discharge in a Loyang drain will face action.

STOMPer Lim had previously made a post about the yellow liquid flowing in the drain which is at Loyang Industrial Park.

The spokesperson said the liquid was non-hazardous printer dye from a company's printing machine.

Said the spokesperson:

"We would like to thank Mr Lim for his feedback.

"On 17 September 2013, the National Environment Agency (NEA) received feedback from a Mr Lim via the NEA hotline about a yellow discharge in a drain at Loyang Link.

"In response, NEA officers went to the site to investigate but no yellow discharge was observed there.

"A heavy downpour that had occurred earlier that afternoon could have washed off any signs of the discharge in the drain.

"When NEA notified Mr Lim of its initial findings, he provided a photograph of the discharge to NEA.

"NEA conducted follow up investigations and subsequently established that the discharge was a non-hazardous yellow dye from a printing machine belonging to a company located at Loyang Link.

"NEA is taking enforcement action against the company responsible for the discharge of trade effluent into the drain."
