Central Jakarta Water Management Public Works Sub-Department will repair old pump houses in eight sub-districts in the region. Later, those pump houses will be replaced with new ones which will be equipped with trash filters.

Head of Central Jakarta Water Management Public Works Sub-Department, Herning Wahyuningsih, said that from 14 pump houses in the region, five of them have been repaired since last year. “That means there are still nine (pump houses) more. We slowly repair them with the existing budget,” she stated, Friday (3/28).

Besides old pump houses, Wahyuningsih continued, trash filters in those pump houses also need to be replaced because they no longer working optimally. For instance is the filter in pump house on Jalan Jati Pinggir, Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta. “We’re focused on pump house in Jati Pinggir, because it is a prone to flood area. The amount of trash there is incredible, until the pump house broken,” she uttered.

According to Wahyuningsih, the damage of pump house in Jati Pinggir is understandable because it is yet equipped with trash filter. Meanwhile, the trash produced by the local residents there is very huge. “Coincidentally, we have not equipped the pump house with a new and tough trash filter. On the other hand, the trash there is excessive,” she finished.
