Kluang poultry farm, fertiliser plant ordered closed

GELANG PATAH: Johor has directed a poultry farm and a factory that converts manure into fertiliser located along Sungai Johor in Kluang to close down.
Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said the move was necessary as the two premises have been identified as the cause of the high ammonia content in Sungai Johor.
He said the decision to close the premises was made following suggestions by eight agencies during a special meeting on Sunday (Oct 29).
In the meeting, investigations conducted by the eight agencies had linked the poultry farm and the plant to the high ammonia content in the river.
It was reported the high ammonia content was detected in Sungai Johor on Saturday forcing the closure of the Sungai Johor, Semanggar and Tai Hong water treatment plants which supply water to 1.8 million consumers in south Johor.
