Personnel from South Jakarta Water Resources (SDA) Sub-agency dredged water channel located on Jalan H. Naseri, RT15/04, Cilandak Barat Urban Village, Cilandak.
" We estimate it to take about two weeks to finish"
South Jakarta SDA Sub-agency Head, Mustajab mentioned, this channel with length of 250 meters and width 60 centimeters was full of mud.
"Dredging is carried out to normalize the channel. Mud sedimentation is already dense, almost as high as the road," he stated, Tuesday (11/24).
Dredging work was carried out manually by 5 personnel from Cilandak Sub-district SDA Unit using hoes since two days ago.
"We estimate it to take about two weeks to finish," he added.
He expected this dredging can make the channel to drain water more optimally to minimize inundation in the area.
"Normalization is carried out up to 30 centimeters depth thus the chnnel can accommodate more water when it rains," he closed.
