Straight Flush Trumps a Full House

Expensive Public Toilet Project Along Kuta Beach Unable to Open Due to Lack of Water Supply

(12/29/2013) Five brand new public toilets reportedly built to a “high international standard” and installed along Kuta Beach will not be available for use during the busy New Year Period when the beach will be invaded by thousands of tourists.

The new toilets have been formally finished and handed over by Badung Tourist Office to the Traditional Village of Kuta who has been designated to manage the facility.

The cost of the project that created 5 toilets was Rp. 2.2 billion (US$183,000).

The problem preventing the use of the new toilets is the lack of a dependable water supply.

Discussions are now reportedly underway between the State Water Board (PDAM) and the Kuta Village.

Because the new toilets cannot be activated without a water supply, portable toilets have been installed along the beach as a temporary measure with visitors asked to pay Rp. 3,000 (US$0.25) to use the bathrooms.
