New Straits Times - - News / Finding Solutions -

A RES­I­DENT of SS7 in Ke­lana Jaya, Se­lan­gor, is con­cerned about stag­nant wa­ter caused by clogged drains in Jalan SS 7/6A.

Faizal Yu­sof said the drains were clogged due to work be­ing car­ried out at a nearby con­struc­tion site.

He said the area could turn into a breed­ing ground for Aedes mos­qui­toes if not dealt with promptly.

“We are con­cerned about our fam­i­lies,” he said, adding that res­i­dents had com­plained of the prob­lem, but no ac­tion was taken.

Its pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer, Zainun Zakaria, said the coun­cil would also in­form the Health Depart­ment so that in­spec­tion and fog­ging could be con­ducted in the area.
