Protect Our Flood Retention Ponds!

Shuhana Shamsuddin, President, Pereka Bandar

Protect Our Flood Retention Ponds!

In a move that’s considered pretty regressive, the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur Land Executive Committee is planning to degazette the land around Sungai Bunus flood retention pond, less than 4 years after gazetting it as an impounding reservoir. Despite claiming that the degazettement will be done purely to amend the land status to “Flood Retention Pond and Open Area” from solely “Flood Retention Pond”, the revision might open up the risk of potential development taking place around the area in the future. President of Pereka Bandar, Shuhana Shamsuddin joins us to highlight the importance of flood retention ponds, and why they must be protected, alongside taking other measures to ensure that the city is able to cope and mitigate flash floods.
