(6/22/2014)

According to Bali Post and Radar Bali, the Island’s fabled Kuta Beach attractiveness is threatened by unthinking hotels restaurant and business operators who continue to allow untreated sewage water to seep into shoreline areas used by swimmers.

Efforts to reduce pollution by sending letters of reminders to errant businesses, socialization through public meetings and even blocking off waste pipes are seemingly failing to curb pollution and eliminate the sometime abhorrent smells that can ruin a day at the beach.

While the problem can be most prevalent on the beach areas surrounding Jalan Padma, a member of the Badung House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung), Wayan Puspa Negara, told the press that the problem extends beyond the Jalan Padma area and also affects Jalan Double Six in Legian and Jalan Toya Ning in Kedonganan.

The problem is becoming sufficiently acute that regency officials are planning to put a sewage truck on stand-by in the area to haul away effluent as the need arises.

The head of the Badung Environmental Agency (BLH-Badung), Ketut Sudarsana, blame much of the pollution on business owners who play cat and mouse games with local officials. He suspects that some hotels, restaurants and entertainment spots are discharging wastes via concealed pipes with outlets in roadside drainage ditches.

In the past, Regency Officials have blocked off 17 sewage pipes discharging into drains connected to hotels and restaurants in the Legian and Kuta area of Bali. Letters have also been sent by the Government to the offending companies. But, in the words, of the BLH Official, “Unfortunately, these businesspeople have little awareness about the natural environment.”
