Assessment of the impacts of sand mining showed that erosion of the river banks is expos-ing the foundation of bridges and exposing water pipelines. This kind of scenario was also observed by Kondolf (1997) in a study on the effects of gravel mining on dams and river sys-tems.

In-stream mining also impacts diversity. When the in-stream mining removes or alters the river and riverbank habitat, the number of individual species that once lived in those habitats declines (Bruce, 2009). In Malaysia, the main source of sand is from in-stream mining. In-stream sand mining is a common practice
