Water Water Everywhere

Denpasar, Bali’s Water Shortage to Continue Until 2013


Bali News: Water Water Everywhere

(9/16/2012)

Bisnis Bali reports that Bali’s capital city of Denpasar is running short on water due to its burgeoning population and a shortfall in the ability of the water department in meeting growing demands for water.

The Municipal Water Board (PDAM-Denpasar) has a customer base of 70,919 with a list of 8,744 more customers waiting for connections.

The chief of PDAM-Denpasar, Ir.Putu Gede Mahaputra, said the long waiting list is tied to his department’s inability to produce sufficient fresh water to meet the capital’s needs. In 2012, Denpasar’s demand for fresh water was an average of 1,375 liters of water per second while production capacities stood at only 1,269 liters per second."

There was a resulting shortfall in production of 105 liters per second.

The chairman of the Bali Consumers Foundation, Ketut Udi Prayudi, told the press that it is the responsibility of PDAM to ensure there are adequate fresh water supplies for the public.

In response, Mahaputra said that PDAM is working to overcome the increasing shortfall in fresh water in Bali. In 2013 new water supplies for Denpasar taken from the Penet and Petanu Rivers.

Mahaputra continued: “PDAM-Denpasar at the present time relies solely on water from the Ayung River. To overcome water shortages we are waiting for the construction of a water station being built by the Sarbagita consortium. That project will tap into water from the Petanu River in Gianyar and the Penet River in Tabanan."

He anticipates the first phase of the Petanu River project will begin operations in 2013, although consumers will only begin enjoying that supply in 2014. For the Penet River the construction will take place in 2013-2014 with water from that source coming on line in 2015.

The new water installations promise an additional 300 liters of water supply every second.

He also said he hoped the heightened water production capacity would reduce the use of people in Denpasar of precious subterranean water reserves.
