SDB cleans up river next to its By the Sea Batu Ferringhi project

 A 200m downstream stretch of Sungai Satu in Batu Ferringhi, Penang, is now clear of clogged rubbish – thanks to an RM2mil river rehabilitation project by Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB).

The rehabilitation of the particular stretch, which leads to the sea, was completed in seven months.

SDB is the developer of the By The Sea private beachfront suites next to Sungai Satu.

The company claimed it is the first private developer in the country to initiate such a project.

It also claimed that it used German-made bioengineering technology for the river project, which is another first in Malaysia.

Consultant in charge of the project – Singapore-based Enviro Pro Green Innovations’ director Carsten Huttche said the rehabilitation project comprised of three components which was floating boom, sedimentation forebay and wetland system.
 

The German-made bioengineering technology used products such as rock rolls, stone mattress, 3D-coir erosion control blankets, waterproofing membrane and various filter media.

“The technology is beneficial for erosion and slope protection from flood impacts.

“We are also using natural materials such as silica sand and plants for river treatment,” he said at the launching of the newly rehabilitated river at By The Sea showroom yesterday.

SDB managing director Teh Lip Kim said it was a great opportunity for them to beautify the river and to make it a plus point for house buyers.

“We landscaped it and put in marine plants, which can take away nitrates out of the once polluted river,” Teh said, adding that the river can also serve as a source of education on sustainability for school children.

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng who launched the event said such technology could also be adopted to treat other polluted rivers in Penang.

“We strive to be not only a location of choice for investors and a destination of choice for tourists but more importantly, a habitat of choice for residents who desire sustainable living,” he said.
