TenCate Geotube® River Remediation - Melaka, Malaysia

The city of Melaka is located along the Melaka River which flows North to South through the middle of the city. The river has been the centre of activity throughout the long history of Melaka. However, industrialization and economic development over the last 20 years had led to the indiscriminate dumping of trash and the run-off of nutrients and raw sewage directly into the river. This coupled with a buildup in sediment in the river bed, has resulted in it becoming non-flushing, foul smelling and murky and blackish in nature, along with algal plumes in certain locations.
