Abstract

The issues of pollution in riverine villages in Sarawak have become more rampant than a health hazard, unsafe for home consumption and become deteriorated environmentally, with water-borne diseases threatening the quality of water and its natural habitat. This situation associates with the practices of riverine villages by dumping their domestics waste and unused products into the river. This research and findings were done at Kampong Mang, one of a village along Batang Samarahan Kuching by developing questionnaires as secondary data and random interviews with the villagers where I am staying. The results being reviewed and found out that there is an urgent need for proper garbage disposal site for the villagers and apparently government and local authority intervention is required to established proper place for waste disposal in relation to their provisions and by laws. Remedial action needs to be taken urgently since the river pollution is not only affected the life and growth of the people living nearby, but also water habitat in particular and environment as a whole.
