" It takes 2 days to clean it"
Sukapura Urban Village Head, Abdul Rahman conveyed, personnel has been deployed since Monday (1/27) to clean as long as 40 meters of Cakung Lama River from water hyacinth.

According to him, this river should be cleaned from water hyacinth since it is potential to inhibit water flow, especially during heavy rain. Moreover, Cakung Lama River is the estuary of all micro channels in Sukapura Urban Village.
