Jakarta Deputy Governor Looking for Donator to Build Septic Tanks

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Jakarta Deputy Governor Ahmad Riza Patria has promised to find a donor to build Septic tanks for resident houses. All the while, residents who don’t have septic tanks are throwing their feces straight into the river.

“All regional chiefs will find the solution by bringing together the necessary funds,” he said today in the town hall. He explained that the future donors were someone from these neighborhoods with good financial potential. Construction begins after the money is collected.

Among them, a neighborhood in Rambutan was found to have no septic tanks, and to date 237 houses there dump their waste directly into the river.

Rambutan Sub-District Office Secretary Suhartono said, “People are polluting the waters and they have failed to realize that it is wrong.” These 237 houses are part of 6 different neighborhood associations and most of them are rental houses.

City officials will inspect houses on the banks of the Cipinang and Sura Rivers. “Majority of the houses that don’t have any Septic tanks belongs to someone with good financial resources, “said Suhartono.
