Currently about 200,000 persons of the Penang Georgetown population is served by a sewerage system which conveys the raw sewage to an open channel flume in Jelutong for discharge into the Western Channel. This has resulted in the degradation of coastal water quality in the affected areas. Therefore, there exists an urgent need to look for other alternatives for sewage treatment and disposal. This paper presents the results of computer simulations on the impacts of sewage discharge on Penang coastal waters under two treatment and disposal options.
