Today, 40 PPSU personnel deployed to clean water channel on Jl. Sinar and Jl. Pori, RW 07 Pisangan Timur, Pulogadung, East Jakarta.
" Every Sunday, our PPSU personnel clean up the channel routinely"
Pisangan Timur Urban VIllage Head, Muhammad Iqbal mentioned, personnel used hoes, crowbars, digging fork, dustpan, sacks, and other simple tools to clean mud sedimentation and garbage along this one-kilometer channel.
"This cleaning activity doesn't involve local residents, in order to prevent COVID-19 transmission," he stated, Sunday (1/24).
Mud sedimentation in this channel has thickness about 50 centimeters. If it is not handled quickly, it is feared that it will trigger inundation when heavy rain falls continuously.
"Every Sunday, our PPSU personnel clean up the channel routinely to prevent it from being clogged thus hopefully inundation can be prevented when heavy rain falls," he explained.
