The Central Jakarta Water Resources (SDA) Sub-agency continues to build two embung (artificial lake) and five processed ponds (olakan) as an important part of efforts to deal with inundation and flooding.
" It has been carried out since October and now has touched 30 percent"
SDA Sub-agency's Maintenance Division Head Glen Santista said it was focused on Jalan Jayakarta as wide as 600 square meters and Jalan Mangga Besar as wide as 100 square meters.
"It has been carried out since October and now has touched 30 percent. To do it, we have alerted 36 personnel at the location," he expressed, Tuesday (11/17).
He added those five ponds were under construction in Sawah Besar Sub-district (two ponds) and Cempaka Putih Sub-district (three ponds).
"We also plan to send mobile pumps in these ponds and lakes in order to dump water into a nearby river," he stated.
