Next to Labrador: Massive reclamation plus underwater blasting

The massive reclamation at Pasir Panjang continues. This huge site is next to Labrador's shores, near Sentosa's natural shores and close to Cyrene Reef.

Dredging and reclamation works lead to high levels of sediments and thus murky waters. Like haze in the air, this 'cloudy' water is not good for our marine life.

Where does the sand for the reclamation come from?

It is dredged from the East Coast. I just found out the extent of the dredging sites there, where dredging goes on 24/7 for it seems a long time, and a long time to come. Here's more about the adverse impact of dredging.

Here's a view of the work site in Dec 2010.
