South Thousand Islands Water Resources (SDA) Unit personnel build crossing channels (sodetan) and infiltration wells at RT 01/01 and RT 01/02 of Untung Jawa Island Urban Village to minimize inundation in the area.
" We build crossing channel using pipes that lead the water directly to the sea"
Thousand Islands SDA Sub-department Head, Abdul Rauf conveyed, those locations are located in basin area which is prone to inundation.
"We build crossing channel using pipes that lead the water directly to the sea. While infiltration rain is used to hold rain water," he explained, Thursday (2/27).
His side has started this project since yesterday and targeted to finish it by today.
Untung Jawa Island Urban Village Head, Supriyadi admitted, those areas are often inundated when rainfall intensity is rather high, thus it needs crossing channels and infiltration well.
"Hopefully, there will be no schools and settlements submerged by flood again," he said.
