¢ Source of Whiff in the West found: NEA
We refer to the letter “A stench in the air in the West” (Nov 4). The odour detected by some residents in Jurong West recently has been traced to factories which could have discharged odorous substance into the sewer that is connected to the Jurong Water Reclamation Plant — a sewage treatment
plant that treats waste water before releasing it into the sea. The odour has subsided since Nov 3. The NEA monitored the air in the area following the complaints and did not detect any toxic substances.
The NEA is undertaking further investigations with regards to the factories involved. We thank the reader for the feedback.
