Protecting our waterways

The words of our Minister for Environment, Parveen Kumar, stating that we need to be responsible citizens and dispose of rubbish carefully (FT:26/03), is not only an understatement but I believe needs to be done so that people literally do so!

If one examined the hundreds of creeks and rivers throughout the country, one will find that it is being used for anything and everything!

What we need is for the enforcement arm of the Department of Environmental to do its job and police the degradation of what was once a pristine environment.

We are already facing a losing battle!

Mere talk will not fix this huge environmental issue!
