" Until now it has reached 55 percent ongoing and is targeted to be complete on October 15"
West Jakarta Water Resources (SDA) Sub-agency's Development and Drainage Improvement Division Head Imam Prasetyo said it had been ongoing since October 22.
He explained, the channel normalization on Jalan Patra was up to 325 meters length with 150 centimeters depth and width. Then on Jalan Mangga I, it was done up to 145 meters with 80 centimeters width and depth.
"Until now it has reached 55 percent ongoing and is targeted to be complete on October 15," he said, Wednesday (11/11).
It was done to maximize water holding capacity and to smoothen water flow into retention pond or locally known as olakan towards Sekretaris River when rain poured.
"By so we can avoid puddles on Jalan Patra, Jalan Asem, Jalan Mangga and its surroudings," he closed.
