Puddles on Jalan Adi Karya, Gg Bendungan, Kedoya Selatan Urban Village, Kebon Jeruk, totally receded, on Tuesday (5/18) afternoon.
Puddles start to recede at 10:30 AM
Kebon Jeruk Sub-district Head, Saumun expressed, previously the water had inundated the street up to 15-45 centimeters high since morning after the Kali Pesanggrahan River overflowed.
"Puddles start to recede at 10:30 AM. So far we are still doing cleanup action together with the Kebon Jeruk Sub-district SDA task force and PPSU personnel," he expressed.
He stated that the receding puddle was because of the reduced water flow in the river assisted by suctioning the puddle using a mobile pump.
"Hopefully the SDA sub-agency may soon build a levee in order to prevent similar disaster, especially in the rainy season," he hoped.
