Jakarta Candidates Avoid Pressing Water Issues
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Nurkholis Hidayat, director of the Jakarta Legal Assistance Institution (LBH), said the provision of clean water has not received proper attention in the campaigns of Jakarta governor candidates. Many candidates lack understanding about water problems in Jakarta and are therefore unable to solve the issue.
“It is expected that the people might question the credibility and commitment of these candidates with regard to their plan for solving water problems in Jakarta,” said Nurkolis on Sunday.
The information below is obtained from the Coalition for the Jakarta Community Against Water Privatization:
- More than 40 households in Jakarta are not connected to water pipes. Those in the marginal population are forced to buy water at Rp37,000 to Rp85,000 per cubic meter.
- Historian JJ Rizal has written that the safety level of Jakarta’s clean water is only 2.2 percent or 27.2 percent if the ground water is put into the equation.
- Research conducted by Jakarta Environmental Affairs Management (BPLH) revealed the quality of rivers in 45 points of observation in 13 watersheds in the Ciliwung River in 2010 showed 0 percent were in good condition, 9 percent showed mild pollution and 82 percent were heavily polluted.
