BATU PAHAT: About 250 residents of Kampung Parit Jorak Senawi Darat, Tongkang Pechah, near here, are upset with the foul smell emitting from a sewage tank nearby.
The residents from 60 houses said they have had to endure the stench for the past four years.
"The smell is overpowering. The pollution to the environment is just unbearable," said 60-year-old Shamsudin Corong, the village head of Kg Parit Jorak Senawi Darat.
"The sewage tank which was built by the developer of a housing project nearby malfunctioned four years ago and no one has taken the trouble to have it repaired," he said.
"The developer of the housing project should look into this matter immediately."
Another resident, Mahathir Mohamad, said the residents had to bear with the smell during Hari Raya celebrations.
"It is so embarrassing when relatives come over and they just lost their appetite due to the stench," said Mahathir.
"Whenever there was a downpour, the human faeces would even inundate some houses located near the sewage tank. Imagine having to clean up the mess just before they could start the Hari Raya open house gathering."
