The Jakarta Environment Agency was appealed by City DPRD to intensify biopori holes development in the capital.
" Its holes can be made on neighborhood roads"
City DPRD's Commission D Member, Abdul Ghoni said that it was effectively minimizing puddles, as it has a fairly high water absorption, which flowed, into the ground.
"Its holes can be made on neighborhood roads," he expressed, Wednesday (2/6).
It is also able to encourage people to change littering habit.
"Moreover Jakartans are urged to reduce the use of plastic bag," he told.
Another member, Pantas Nainggolan added that it should be made based on the calculation of water discharge.
"And paralon used in biopori must be large to smoothen the flow of water," he said.
