Urban Water Resources Conservation & Awareness


Water is the source of life! Do you aware or not, river is actually our main source of water and it’s sad to see polluted rivers. Sometimes we waste a lot of water through inefficient washing, bathing, cooking and etc. I’m glad to know that corporates, NGOs and government agencies are working towards urban water resources conservation and heightened the awareness. Not only ensuring that water is managed sustainably but also educating the local communities as well as investing in strategic rehabilitation initiatives.

I believe each of us can practice this at home or in the office, not only it helps to save water but also our water bill 

SPARK Foundation has committed to invest RM2.5 million over the next three years for Phase 3 to fund continuous education programmes and strategic initiatives along the targeted river basins of Sungei Way, Sungai Penchala and Sungai Selangor. Key initiatives at project sites include rainwater harvesting, water thimble technology, wetland construction and reforestation.
