The Challenges Malaysia¡¯s Wastewater Treatment Industry are Still Facing in 2022
View Full Size
The global Sustainable Development Goals Index of Malaysia measured in 2021 highlighted that the proper treatment of human-produced wastewater remains a major challenge, and we learnt that wastewater treatment requires both the active and passive approaches to make the needing environmental changes happen in Malaysia by all stakeholders. All citizens have a part to play, be it a voice to premises owner or a drive to policy makers for change. For us as citizens to staying passive doesn’t forward the progress, as the responsibility has been heavily relied on government’s policy in the past.


Department of Environment, or DOE in short (Kementerian Alam Sekitar dan Air) issued Environmental Quality (Industrial Effluents) Regulations 2009 to govern industrial effluent discharge particularly to the manufacturing operator in Malaysia, and the policy remains in use until today. The regulations require premises that release effluents to soils or any inland waters applying to be authorized and follow the discharging procedures of monitoring, design and construction of the treatment system. However, the information available online has not been completed, which make the progress measuring study the other challenge where the trend is unavailable to identify.


The efficacious action and essential step to be taken by manufacturing premises is no other than working together with wastewater treatment specialist to keep their treatment systems’s functionality in check, which to ensure compliance fulfilment. The significance of doing so is not only pretending the spills of restricted substances, but in general avoiding the occurrence of accidental untreated discharge which could directly lead to public health issues, or another water outage which would then affect businesses. These are not unfamiliar issues in Malaysia throughout the year, and these issues themselves are reminders to taking responsible first step to progress our much needed environmental change for consistent treated and clean water supply. 


In out line of business, we have seen how effluent discharge been neglected until a compound issued by a government, which incur not only the evitable fine but also unnecessary environmental cost. While the challenges remain, it’s only when we as a whole are taking accountability then the challenges could be overcome and national progress would take place.

In 2020, Environment Ministry has joint forces with public by offering public rewards for earlier detection of illegal effluent discharged in the communities. This measure of vigilance towards water pollutions has reflected the nations progress towards sustainable water resources. The self-regulated enforcement, Guided Self-Regulation (GSR) was introduced by DOE as one of the compliance to implement by all wastewater treatment plants. Here’s a quick glance of the 8 components of GSR in the process to implement in your wastewater treatment plant!:
  1. Environment policy
  2. Competent Person
  3. Environment Management & Decision Making Process Committee
  4. Performance Monitoring Facilities & Instruments
  5. Record Keeping
  6. Data Analysis & Interpretation
  7. Reporting & Communication
  8. Continuous Improvement
Avoiding sewerage pollution relies on effective water treatment system, which directly influencing the sustainability of water resources. And this made us who we are today. As the wastewater treatment specialist in the industry for more than a decade, we custom design the system to treat different industrial effluent, and build the treatment plant to last for a low maintenance over time! Be a proud citizen on earth for sustainable water resources together with Legend Water.

When a manufactory is found not fully complying with the wastewater regulation, which often found only when the water pollution happened, officer from DOE will issue a Field Citation” which points out the particular regulation that has not been complied, following by the Order Notification” with remedial action to be taken by the manufactory to control and decrease the pollution. Then the manufactory is required to pay the compound and legal action will be taken by the government if the Order Notification is failed to be complied. 
Hence according to DOE, checking on wastewater treatment plant according to compliance index should be conducted on a weekly basis. Regular checking could not only ensure the functionality of your wastewater treatment plant, most importantly, the potential issues identified could saved you from a pollution and the following compound and the effects in the community.
Many find the regular system and plant check-up and maintenance is unnecessary and costly, that is a myth. The regular checking by wastewater treatment specialist doesn’t have to be expensive, water quality analysis could be conducted within a range of RM150-250 (as of May 2021). Additionally, running a functionality check-up at your plant or setting up appointment for consultation for the system is offered by Legend Water at no extra cost, it’s free. When conducting the check up is at such a low cost and could effectively prevent the pollution to take place, why not to run the checking regularly? Let’s preserve our water resources by putting the regular checking on the list!
