Central Jakarta Water Resources (SDA) Sub-department dredges channel as long as 150 meters located on Jalan Blue Safir, Sumur Batu Urban Village, Kemayoran Sub-district.
" Due to silting, channel's depth is reduced from 60 cm into 30 cm"
Kemayoran SDA Unit Head, Yursid Suryanegara mentioned, dredging is done because channel is silting due to mud sedimentation and garbage.
"Due to silting, channel's depth is reduced from 60 cm into 30 cm. Thus we need to dredge the channel," he conveyed, Monday (9/16).
According to him, local residents have proposed this channel dredging through Development Planning Discussion (Musrenbang) 2018.
"7 personnel are deployed to dredge the channel. Our target is to complete this dredging in October," he asserted.
