Channel normalization is done on Jalan Letjen Suprapto, Central Jakarta, by dredging mud sedimentation and garbage out of the channel. Dredging is done from Galur traffic light to Jalan Kali Baru Timur.
" 10 personnel are deployed to normalize the channel"
Senen Water Resources (SDA) Unit Head, Rohman said, dredging is done manually because channel's width is only 80 centimeters.
"10 personnel are deployed to normalize the channel. We will dredge it until its depth is around 1.5 meters. Hopefully it can be finished on the second week of March," he mentioned, Tuesday (2/26).
His side hopes this normalization can help water to flow smoothly and minimize inundation occurrence.
