Sungai Melaka, located in the historical city of Malacca, is now so clear that people can see schools of fish swimming around. The river has not achieved this level of cleanliness for a long time.
Sungai Melaka water has been cleaner during the Movement Control Order (MCO) due to the lack of human activities. Previously, it was very busy with boats plying the river, causing its water to be murky.
The Department of Environment (DOE) took 158 enforcement actions against premises and individuals for polluting the environment, especially rivers.
Not just fishes, but sightings of various animals such as monitor lizards have also been reported. This development excites a lot of Malaysians, most of whom agree that they need to keep the river clean for future generations.
