The Denpasar Sewerage Development Project is scheduled for construction commencement in June 2004, following the completion of test pathways designed to avoid disturbing existing subterranean electrical, telephone and water lines.
Partially funded by the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JICA), an initial Rp, 165 billion (approximately US$19.4 million) will be used to construct a 46 kilometer long sewage line with a diameter of 1.2 meter.
The sewage line will end in the Suwung area where the raw wastes will be processed and treated. The initial main sewage line will pass the Pertamina depot in Suwung, head north from the Benoa intersection passing Jalan Raya Sesetan, Jalan Diponegoro, Jalan Arjuna, Jalan Karna and Jalan Nangka. Another line from the Sanglah intersection will pass Jalan Raya Puputan, Jalan Letda Tantular, Kapten Japa, Jalan Hayam Wuruk, Jalan Melati and Jalan Patimura.
Mr. Budiarsa, the project manager for The Denpasar Sewerage Development Project recently explained that the project is essential to stop the degradation of Bali's rivers due to waste and sewage disposal and to ultimately protect Bali's beaches.
Prior to assuming the job of project leader for the Denpasar Sewer installation Mr. Budiarsa headed a similar project that laid down the initial sewer works in Yogyakarta, Central Java.
At present, virtually all homes and business in Bali operate with individual septic disposal systems.
