A looming pollution crisis up north?

Environmentalists have issued a clarion call to the authorities, after a second illegal dumping site was discovered along Sungai Muda, which is a main water source for Kedah and Penang. The area is filled with e-waste, raising concerns of a looming pollution crisis amid a water shortage caused by the current dry spell in the region. We find out what's happening up north.
