HAZE/AIR QUALITY UPDATE (15 FEBRUARY, 2015)

Singapore, 15 February 2015 – Localised haze and odour was experienced by some residents in Sengkang, Hougang and Serangoon areas earlier this morning. There have been no reports of local fires in these areas.

NEA is in touch with our Malaysian counterparts, who have confirmed that a fire which originated from a bush fire on 12 February evening, has affected one of the cells at a landfill site in Pasir Gudang, southern Johor. The Malaysian authorities have highlighted that activities are underway to put out the fire in the areas and cap burnt areas with soil to prevent fires from recurring. They are monitoring the situation closely, to prevent the fire from spreading further.

The air quality in Singapore has remained in the Moderate range. NEA will continue to monitor the air quality readings and notify the public if there are any changes to the PSI.
