"Dam width is 5 meters with depth 1.5 meters. While retention basin's depth is about 6 meters," he explained.

His side operated several heavy equipment to dredge mud, tidy up retention basin, and build dam.

"We deploy 2 amphibious units, 3 excavator units belonging to SDA, and 1 excavator unit belonging to private companies. We also deploy 2 operators from private companies and 10 Cilincing SDA Unit personnel," he informed.

Belibis Retention Basin is built to overcome flood and expected to hold more water in the surrounding area. It is also planned to be ecotourism area as citizen interaction place.
