Abstract

Iskandar Malaysia, a new Southern development corridor established on 30 July, 2006 in the state of Jahar, Malaysia is one of the catalyst developments to help in the development and grovvth of the Malaysian economy. Iskandar Malaysia is approximately three times the size of Singapore. One of the primary goals of Iskandar Malaysia is the development of a strong and sustainable metropolis. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of Iskandar Malaysia on the river basins within this area for the period 2000-2009. This timeline allows for a pre and post evaluation of Iskandar Malaysia as it was established in 2006. The research methodology adopted was trend analysis. The findings on the eight river basins in Iskandar Malaysia indicated that one was classified as clean, three as slightly polluted and the remaining four as polluted. Trend analysis for the above period did not show any changes in terms of classification with the exception of the Johor River Basin which improved from slightly polluted to clean. A pre and post evaluation on the immediate implementation of Iskandar Malaysia did not result in the overall deterioration of river basin water quality.
