Inanam Sewerage Waste Stabilization Lagoons-no maintenance // 下南南污水处理池缺乏保养





亚庇国会议员办事处收到投诉有关下南南污水处理池的糟糕情况。该投诉者是位工程师,他说,亚庇市政厅和工务局没有定期进行该污水处理池的保养,和没有关注该处的问题。


A complaint was received by the KK MP office on the bad condition arising with the Inanam Sewerage Stabilization Lagoons. The complainant also an engineer said the sewerage lagoons are not receiving attention and regular maintenance by the authorities like DBKK and JKR.


The complainant told the KK MP Hiew King Cheu is an E-mail that he is a resident in Kingfisher Park 2 and he saw that the ponds are overgrown with dense vegetation and this can be seen thriving in all the Anaerobic Ponds and a lesser extent in the Facultative and Maturation Ponds. Trees are a common sight alongside the pond embankments.

The quality and standard of the so called treated sewerage effluent water at discharge is therefore called in question as the efficiency of all the ponds is now compromised. The doubt on the regular sampling and testing of the so called treated sewage effluent water at discharge to prove otherwise has been carried out.

A huge sump was constructed next to the access road to receive pumped raw sewage collected from the whole Kota Kinabalu area before entering the ponds. The dirty sewage water usually splashed on to the passing cars during peak hour pumping. The DBKK workers quarters are usually flooded if there is an overflow.

KK MP Hiew said this calls for immediate attention by the authorities because this is matter concerning public health and it is an environmental hazard. He said he had made complaint personally last year about the overflowing of raw sewage water to the near by land causing serious pollution problems and the matter was attended to and put right. Now further problems had come up due to the overgrown vegetations in the ponds, and this will definitely create problems in the function of the ponds, and may cause overflowing and pollution to the place. This if happens, the people living in Kingfisher Park and the surrounding areas will be affected.

The Kota Kinabalu Master Sewerage Scheme when finally completed and connected to these ponds, we shall see big problem arising because these ponds are not capable of handling that much of sewage water from the whole Kota Kinabalu City. It is a known fact that 70% of the KK sewage water is uncounted for, and most of this has found its way into the open drain or fields. The level of pollution is horrible and sadly this was not noticed by the people. Our land and sea are polluted and contamination is rampant. This is a serious matter and what are our authorities and especially the Department of Environment (DOE) doing? It seems that they knew about this and yet do nothing.

It is a must that the authorities should immediately do something to clear the matter and keep regular maintenance schedule.

下南南污水处理池缺乏保养

亚庇国会议员办事处收到投诉有关下南南污水处理池的糟糕情况。该投诉者是位工程师,他说,亚庇市政厅和工务局没有定期进行该污水处理池的保养,和没有关注该处的问题。

投诉者透过电邮向亚庇国会议员邱庆洲投诉有关事项,他是居住在翠鸟园第二期2,他说该污水池已长满了茂密的杂草灌木,几乎掩盖着整个污水池,此外池旁也长满了树木。

问题是当局有没有确保经过处理后的污水符合规格和有率的处理。 如此糟糕的污水池是否能够有效的处理该些污水达至净化过程所需,此外是否有定期进行采取样本做检验,以确保该污水处理池的功能还有效。
当局在路旁建了一道大口径的污水输送管,将整个亚庇市区还未经处理的污水收集起来,然后输送到污水处理池塘里。 该被泵上来的肮脏污水经常会溢出来而污染路过的车辆。 此外如果发生堵塞而外流,就会流入亚庇市政厅的工人宿舍。

邱亚庇国会议员说,当局必须立即采取行动处理,因为这关乎到公众卫生和环境污染问题。他说,其实去年他已向当局投诉有关污水泛滥而流到附近的土地,并造成了严重污染问题,当局已立即处理,也把问题纠正。 如今由于污水池杂草灌木茂长,将导致污水池失去净化功能,并造成污水溢出而污染环境。 如果真的发生此事,翡翠园和附近的住宅区肯定会受到影响,并且臭气熏天。

如果亚庇市排污系统计划完工后,将会把所有的污水泵至该处的污水处理池。 肯定的到时将会出现更大的问题,因为以现在的情况来看,这些污水池是不足够和不能处理整个亚庇市的大量污水。 这是众所周知的事实,亚庇市的污水有70%是没有经过处理而外流到沟渠和河流。 许多人没有注意到其污染的程度,这是非常可怕和可悲的,亚庇的各处地方和海洋已经受严重污染。 这是急需要关注的问题,为何当局,尤其是环境部(DOE)似乎没有关注到这项问题? 或许他们已知道,而有心无力。

有关当局必须应立即采取行动处理,并必须为污水处理池进行定期保养的工作,不要任由问题发生。
