Process of channel dredging work on Jl. Galur Sari VIII RW 01 Utan Kayu Selatan, Matraman, East Jakarta has touched 95 percent.
" Dredging work is done manually by deploying 10 personnel from Matraman SDA Unit every day"
Matraman Water Resources (SDA) Unit Coordinator, Agus Sutono mentioned, channel with length about 250 meters has been dredged since early December and targeted to finish in the next three days.
"Dredging work is done manually by deploying 10 personnel from Matraman SDA Unit every day," he informed, Monday (12/28).
According to him, channel dredging is carried out because silt thickness reaches 30-50 centimeters and reduces channel's capacity.
"Later on , we hope this channel can hold more water thus it can prevent inundation around the location," he said.
