Pantai Hill Orchard Resort becomes a Toxic Dump Site Again!

Yet again, Pantai Hill Orchard Resort’s own popularity is contributing to its own demise. The surge in outside visitors has made this place less safe and inundated with more rubbish. The latest is another toxic dump of asbestos by unscrupulous individuals or contractors.

Why dump at a clean place when they could have easily taken it to the usual ‘illegal dump-site’ further down? Such acts contaminate the entire stream unnecessarily, bringing toxic materials previously contained within a small stretch of the river to now – almost the entire river, reaching the water treatment plant.

Areas where visitors can enjoy the freshness of the stream without having to trek into the jungle have become less and less.

  1. This is a disgrace. Also please note shorea had a huge display of fireworks recently putting the whole forest in danger not to mention the extreme noise. It is amazing there are any birds or wildlife left up here.
