She further pointed out that there are monitor lizards and otters from the Pasir Ris family living in the area.

Contaminated water might affect otters

It’s therefore crucial to keep the waters here as clean as possible so as to create a better environment where these adorable animals can continue living in.

NEA contacted

In a comment on the same post, Tan said that she has already reported the matter to the NEA, while another commenter, Lisa Lim, said reports were made to them and the Public Utilities Board, which controls Singapore’s reservoirs and waterways.
