The Jakarta administration is looking into the use of decomposer bacteria to treat polluted water in the city water bodies to see whether it can be an alternative way to provide potable water for the city.
Deputy Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama said Saturday that the administration would hold a
trial in a Ciliwung River tributary near the State Palace beginning this year.
