In Malaysia, main source the of sand is from in-stream mining. In-stream sand mining is common practice becaa use the mining locations are usually near the "markets" or along the transportation route, hence reducing transportation costs. In-stream sand mining can damage private and public properties as well as aquatic habitats.
Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or the contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes. These processes also have an impact on the ...

suspended sediments from sand mining sites, but the long term, indirect and cumulative effects of mining upon the food chain are harder to study, and have not really been tackled. To study site-speciﬁc effects of instream mining would require careful measurement of mining-induced changes to baseline conditions (Kondolf et al., 2002).
sand mining from rivers and its basin areas imposes many harmful effects (see Chapter 7) on the environment. The impact of sand mining may vary depending upon geologic and geomorphic settings, river size, resource availability, climatic conditions, etc. in order to mitigate the impact of sand mining on the environment, a scientiﬁc evaluation x'
