Normalization on three rivers, which conducted by Ciliwung-Cisadane Flood Control Office (BBWSCC), has reached 61 percent.
The main problem is land acquisition
Those rivers are Ciliwung River, Pesanggrahan River, and Sunter River.
Jakarta Water Resources (SDA) Dept. Head, Teguh Hendrawan said, river normalization cannot be done up to 100 percent, because the land acquisition cannot be done on several lands.
"Normalization program have not reached 100 percent yet, but 61 percent. The main problem is land acquisition," he said at City Hall, Thursday (10/19).
He added, his side is still coordinating with BBWSCC related to river normalization program. Moreover, land acquisition authority is on Jakarta Provincial Government.
"Thus we need to coordinate continuously. Now we focus on normalization of these three locations," he closed.
