The dredging progress of the Cilangkap Reservoir at RW 01 Cilangkap, Cipayung, East Jakarta, has now reached 35 percent.

It is carried out to overcome inundation in Cilangkap, Setu, Bambu Apus, etc

East Jakarta Water Resources (SDA) Sub-agency's Maintenance Division Head, Puryanto said, the reservoir was dredged to four to five meters depth using four heavy equipment consisting of one long arm and three standard units.

"It is carried out to overcome inundation in Cilangkap, Setu, Bambu Apus, etc," he expressed, Friday (9/24).

To smoothen it, the water in the reservoir was drained by closing the sluice gate bordering the reservoir in the Cilangkap Agro Tourism area.

"It is expected to be completed by the end of this year," he stated.
