Bali Officials Cap Pipes of Legian Beach Hotels and Inns Pumping Raw Sewage Into Roadside Drains and Nearby Ocean

(8/5/2012) The Quick Response Team from the Environmental Agency of the Badung Regency descended on Jalan Padma Legian on Wednesday to investigate a large number of local businesses and accommodation providers discharging raw sewage into roadside drains that eventually flows into the nearby sea at Legian Beach.

As reported by Nusa Bali, the head of the regency division charged with supervision of the environment, AA Raka Sukadana, confirmed 12 discharge pipes were discovered along the roadside drains – all linked to nearby accommodation providers.

Upon discovering the pipes, the regency ordered PT Dawan Sakti, the company that has the contract to upgrade drainage along Jalan Padma to immediately seal all discharge pipe. The order to close the pipes was also supported by the village chief (lurah) of Legian.

Regency and lurah authorities warned local businesses that they will not hesitate in the future to open access to drainage ditches in order to seal off existing or new drainage pipes discovered to be discharging into public drains that eventually flow to the sea.
