THE developer of Vista Lavender in Puchong has agreed to channel its sewage discharge to a proper outlet.
According to Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) president Datuk Adnan Md Ikshan, the developer has agreed to resolve the matter after a recent meeting.
“We will wait until December for them to do the necessary work,” he said.
StarMetro had reported on the channelling of sewage discharge into the main drain which leads to the Klang River.
It is believed that the illegal activity had been going on at the site for more than five years.
According to residents, the overflow from a sewerage manhole in the basement of the 15-storey Block A is being diverted into the main drain.
The developer has built a concrete barrier around the overflowing manhole and created an outlet to channel the sewage into a main drain.
During the meeting, Adnan also spoke about the lack of cleanliness with regard to high-rise residential areas.
He said that the problems were caused by the attitude of the residents.
“You find them throwing rubbish everywhere like in the lifts, pathways and out the windows, which is not right,” he said.
He also spoke about complaints of stray dogs at high-rise buildings.
“We have spoken to the joint management bodies (JMBs) and they have said that action will be taken.
“MPSJ is willing to offer assistance in such matters because we know that most of these JMBs are barely a year old,” he said
