Sunter Agung Urban Village, Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta, prepares two portable water pumps to handle inundation that usually occurs on Jl. Ancol Selatan. Because when heavy rain falls, inundation can disrupt residents mobility on the road.
" Inundation can be reduced by preparing that pump. In heavy rain falls, it can up to 10-15 centimeters depth"
"One pump is from us, and other from Jakarta Water Resource Dept. It can absorb up to 250 liters per hour," said Andi Dirham, Head of Sunter Agung Urban Village, Monday (8/28).
According to him, the prepared pumps can effectively reduce inundation from overflowed water channel on the location.
"Inundation can be reduced by preparing that pump. In heavy rain falls, it can up to 10-15 centimeters depth. But when it is not rain, there is no inundation", he explained.
Inundation on Jl. Ancol Selatan is one of 8 inundation spots which is still needed to be handled. Other spots on Jl. Agung Tengah, Sunter Muara, Kompleks Barat, Sts Sunter Residential, Sunter Paradise, Kompleks DKI, and Kompleks Setneg have been able to handle.
"We also have 150 PPSU personnel that are prepared to go to the inundation location immediately," he closed.
