Bernama-DOE investigating odor contamination in Simpanply

IPOH, March 21 (Bernama)-The Pera Environment Agency (DOE) is investigating odorous contamination allegedly caused by chemicals around Simpanply near here.

Perak Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad, said Mohd Akmal Kamarudin, chairman of the state’s Health, Science, Environment and Green Technology Commission, was informed of the issue at a recent state executive committee meeting.

“We understand that Pella DOE is under investigation and we are waiting for the results of the investigation because the source of the odor is unknown,” he held today at the 45th Annual Meeting of the Pella Farmers’ Organization. I told reporters later.

Earlier, Simpang Pulai councilor Tan Kar Hing uploaded status to his Facebook site about stink cases originating from chemicals around Bandar Seri Botani, Simpang Pulai, Taman Muda, and Kampung Sengat.

In the update, Tan said he had to open the car window throughout the area as he patrolled around the area and claimed that the smell hurt his eyes and suffered from shortness of breath. ..

Meanwhile, Rosli Zul, director of Pera DOE, said when contacted, his department had sent several officers to investigate the problem.

“Looking at the latest information on Facebook, no particular area was mentioned, as lawmakers were only talking about stinks along the road.

“There are many industrial estates from around Simpamprai to Lahat, so we want to find out what has many causes, so we need to do a more detailed investigation to determine the real cause,” he said.

However, his department does not downplay the problem and continues to investigate until the cause of the odor is identified.
