RELOCATE proposed Tanah Merah Sea Burial Facilty

We support a sea burial facility BUT the proposed site is in a bay shared by two popular sea sports facilities - the MOE Sea Sports Centre and NSRCC Sea Sports Centre. There is also a recreational swimming beach nearby.
On any given weekend, there are 100 to 200 sailing boats, windsurfers and stand-up paddlers using the stretch of water that is down-current from the site. Young children also sail and train in these waters. Boats capsize and people swim in these waters. The sea water they swallow might contain the remnants of someone's loved one. How would that person's relatives feel about this possibility?
These are the real stakeholders who should be consulted.
We have many other choices of location for a sea burial facility that is more private and away from areas of public recreation and activity. We strongly urge the NEA to reconsider the decision and find an alternative location.
