KUCHING: The result of an analysis on water samples taken by the Natural Resources and Environmental Board from Sarawak River at Kuching waterfront will be out in five days.

Acting Controller of NREB, Justin Jok Jau Emang, made this known to New Sarawak Tribune earlier today.

“We suspect that many fishes died in the river due to the long current draught,” he said.

Justin also mentioned that it could also be due to the deterioration of water quality, but that could only be confirmed by the ongoing analysis.

“Yesterday, NREB staff went to Kuching Waterfront and collected more samples. Once the results are out, NREB will be able to explain what actually happened,” he said.

Late last week, the public complained about the foul stench at the Kuching Waterfront emanating from many dead fishes in the river.
