Mud dredging work in the micro channel on Jalan Gereja Ayam, Pasar Baru, Sawah Besar, Central Jakarta, finally completed.
We have managed to collect about 2,000 sacks of mud from the channel
Sawah Besar Sub-district Water Resources (SDA) Executing Unit Head Nanang Gusnadi said, within 20 days, 12 personnel dredged the channel, which was 200 meters long and 1x1.2 meters in diameter.
"We have managed to collect about 2,000 sacks of mud from the channel," he explained.
By so, he hoped that it could smoothen water flow and accommodate rain water in large quantities.
"We also hope it is able to minimize inundation when it rains," he stated.
