The massive destruction of forest reserves in Kedah has shocked the Penang Water Supply Authority (PBAPP), which said this threatens water supply for more than two million citizens, businesses and paddy farming.

PBAPP chief executive Jaseni Maidinsa urged the federal government to act immediately to stop logging in the Ulu Muda Forest Reserve as this place serves as the primary water catchment area for the Sungai Muda.

Jaseni urged Putrajaya to immediately gazette Ulu Muda as a water catchment area, halt logging activities now and totally ban it in future.
