Jakarta to Ban Groundwater Extraction Due to Imminent Land Subsidence
Mayor of North Jakarta Ali Maulana Hakim said the area has been facing the impacts of land subsidence, and if no action is taken, it will result in more serious problems.
“As seen in embankments, the land level is already below sea level. This is due to land subsidence, and if groundwater continues to be extracted, the land will also continue to subside," Ali said on Friday, January 7, as reported by Antara.
For that reason, Ali encouraged Jakarta residents to follow the rule that will take effect in 2023.
PT PAM Lyonnaise Jaya and Aetra supply clean water in North Jakarta through pipelines. However, Hakim admitted the piping system hasn’t reached the more rural areas, and to solve this issue, the government will use master meter to ensure all areas are supplied with clean water.
Lastly, he added the development of pipelines will continue to ensure an even equal access to water for North Jakarta residents.
