Pasar Minggu Water Resources (SDA) Unit deployed 10 personnel to dredge channel at RT 08 and 09 settlements, RW 11, Pejaten Timur Urban Village, Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta.
" Our target is to finish the dredging by the end of this month"
Pasar Minggu Sub-district Head, Arief Wibowo stated, personnel dredged channel with width about 60-100 centimeters because it was full of mud thus it couldn't drain water optimally.
"We need to normalize the channel to increase its capacity thus it will not overflow and cause inundation, especially when heavy rain falls," he explained.
Personnel have dredged the channel manually with depth around 20-30 centimeters since two weeks ago.
"Our target is to finish the dredging by the end of this month," he said.
