Seribu Islands Regency will build dikes in six inhabited islands.
" Dike needs to be built to protect beach border lines from abrasion"
Those dikes will be built in Tidung Island, Pramuka Island, Kelapa Island, Untung Jawa Island, Kelapa Dua Island, and Harapan Island.
"Dike needs to be built to protect beach border lines from abrasion," mentioned Iwan P. Samosir, Seribu Islands Assistant in Economy and Development, Wednesday (12/12).
He added, dike construction will be started in 2019 and built as outermost road around the island. It is used not only to protect beach border line from abrasion, but also to increase environment quality and beach ecosystem.
