River Within River Concept
River within River Concept is an initiative by W.A.T.E.R Project committee. This initiative is a result of sub-committee for habitat creation meeting held at Armada Hotel on the 19th August this year. Sub-committee members principally agreed to the idea brought forward by GEC as part and parcel of Sg Way Rehabilation programme. Although it may seems like a small project to improve the physical conditions of Sg Way but the concept to be introduced will have a significant impact on the current condition of the Sg Way especially to it biodiversity. The River within River concept was adopted after realising that a major modification to existing concreted and channelised river may sound impossible.
Besides improving the authentic value of Sg Way, the ‘River Within River’ initiative also managed to improve the river water quality from Class IV-V to Class III. As of 2019, the water quality maintained at Class III.
