"In order to dredge additional 14 locations, we have proposed another 60 heavy equipment," he mentioned, Wednesday (9/22).
Because he needed many heavy equipment for dredging work while the existing equipment are still used for dredging in 26 locations, his side will ask private companies to help through CSR. The current condition is that 50 heavy equipment units are being used for dredging in 26 locations.
"There are 93 dump trucks in 10 sub-districts. All of them are currently being used to transport mud sedimentation collected from reservoirs, rivers, and Phb channels," he conveyed.
