" Puddles on Jalan Raya Jambore has a height of 50-80 cm and in the KPAD Complex has 25-30 cm. Up to 4:50 PM, we are still on working"
Some 22 personnel of the Water Resources (SDA) Task Force have been alerted to handle puddles as high as 50-80 cm on Jalan Raya Jambore, Cibubur, Ciracas, East Jakarta, on Tuesday (10/27).
Due to this condition, they directed the motorists to pass through on Jalan Taruna Jaya.
Ciracas Sub-district SDA Executing Unit Head Sarkam said two floating pumps with 250 liters per second alerted to the location in a bid to pump puddles on Jalan Raya Jambore and in the KPAD Housing Complex.
"Puddles on Jalan Raya Jambore has a height of 50-80 cm and in the KPAD Complex has 25-30 cm. Up to 4:50 PM, we are still on working," he expressed, Tuesday (10/27).
According to him, as long as the drainage on Jalan Jambore was not connected to the six infiltration wells that were being built, puddles could be handled.
Moreover, the drains in the KPAD Complex were clogged.
"While waiting for the completion of the infiltration well construction, we will set up a floating pump at the KPAD Complex, including the drains cleanup in the near future," he stated.
