‘No water rationing in Selangor this dry season‘ (Malaysiakini)
Malaysiakini reported Khalid Ibrahim as saying: “Under this system, water from the river will be pumped to the ponds to ensure that there is adequate supply to the water treatment plants …”
Note that Malaysiakini – most conspicuously – failed to mention that “the ponds” are disused tin mining ponds — kolam bekas lombong bijih timah.
Reporting on the same story, The Mole mentioned “nine disused tin mining ponds”.
What the Pakatan state government plans to do during the dry season is to once more pipe the contaminated air lombong to Selangor households.
