West Jakarta communities lack access to clean water
The Jakarta Post
Residents of Jl. Jambu Air and Kampung Koang in Pegadungan subdistrict, Kalideres, West Jakarta, have long lacked access to clean water, according to a subdistrict official.
To fulfill their daily needs, residents get water from the nearby Maja River, the quality of which is also inadequate, Pegadungan subdistrict secretary Tajidul Anwar said on Thursday.
In response to the problem, Tajidul said his office was currently in the process of registering for access to tap water from private water operator PT PAM Lyonnaise Jaya (Palyja).
“Just yesterday [Wednesday], Palyja officers inspected the area to install tap water. The installation will proceed if more than 60 percent residents agree to the process,” Tajidul said as quoted by kompas.com. (rdi)
