KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 23, 2014:
Regional Environmental Awareness of Cameron Highlands (REACH) says water samples taken from Cameron Highlands were sent to the United States recently to test for contaminants from pesticides.
REACH president Ramakrishnan Ramasamy said the water samples had been collected by teams from Universiti Kebangssan Malaysia (UKM) and Universiti Malaysia (USM) over a period of three months since August.
REACH says uncontrolled use of toxic agrochemicals are being made worse by the many farms that have mushroomed upstream of the water catchment area in Sungai Terla, a main source of tap water for Cameron Highlands. — TRP pic by Azrol Ali
