Two Reservoirs to Be Built Around Kampung Pulo and Ciganjur

Jakarta Public Works Department plans to build two reservoirs around
Kampung Pulo, Pondok Labu, Cilandak, as an effort to overcome flood in
that area. One reservoir is going to be built behind the marine
headquarter, while the other reservoir is around infantry brigade
headquarter, Ciganjur, South Jakarta. This plan is currently in
discussion phase.

Tarjuki as Head Section of Water Management
for Jakarta Public Works told the resolution and mitigation of flood
which occurs in Kampung Pulo must be solved thoroughly without making
new problem. That is why the plan to build reservoirs came

According to him, the reservoir behind the marine
headquarter will be built in 1.6 hectares, while the reservoir around
infantry brigade headquarter is reaching 11 hectares. “But this is
only for first phase. Later on, its width will be added,” he said,
Wednesday (11/23).

He explained the dredging for those
reservoirs will be conducted this week and lasted for two weeks. In
the dredging process, his personnel will use two heavy equipments to
be placed behind those locations each.

He hopes this project
will be able to overcome flood problem in Pondok Labu area as well as
other areas at Pondok Labu downstream and around Ciganjur. “Hopefully,
the reservoirs could protect residents from flood,” he

As reported previously, about 60 residents who
joined in the forum of Pondok Labu Flood Victim visited the National
Committee of Human Rights (Komnas HAM) office on Jl. Latuharhary,
Menteng, Central Jakarta, on Monday (11/21). They complained and asked
the committee to facilitate residents and related parties so that
Krukut River could be normalized immediately to prevent them from
getting flooded all the time
