KRT Kampung Segambut Dalam: Sungai Toba River Adoption


Kampung Segambut Dalam where Sungai Toba flows through the village

Community's achievement:

On-going land clearance and development surrounding Kg Segambut Dalam has failed to provide proper pollution prevention in the case of heavy rain or continuous downpour. It causes the water quality of Sungai Toba greatly affected due to high siltation. Under the ROLPOP5 engagement, local communities of KRT Segambut Dalam conducted river monitoring and clean-up activities. They also actively submit series of reports to DBKL to take further action via hotline and ROL’s Citizen’s Eye application. On 5 April 2018, Infrastructure Planning Department (JPIF), DBKL called for meeting with all developers within the vicinity of Kampung Segambut Dalam. It was identified later that Qiana Development at the upstream of Toba River is the main cause of flash flood at Kampung Segambut Dalam. Qiana Development tried to mitigate the problem by enlarging their siltation pond and implemented the additional measures by placing gabion wall at ‘wingwall’, both inlet and outlet. The wall built was to reduce the flooding issue.
