Bali Lawmakers Discover Industrial and Human Wastes Being Discharged into the Ocean at Jalan Double Six.

(6/29/2009)

Bali's Badung House of Representatives (DPR-Badung) is pressing a number of Bali agencies to take the necessary steps to stop hotels, restaurants and businesses in the Double Six - Legian - Seminyak area from discharging raw sewage into surrounding drains, rivers and, eventually, Bali's Sea.

Wayan Suyasa of Commission B of the DPR-Badung was quoted in NusaBali, calling on the Badung Environmental Agency (BLH) to urgently determine the source of pollution in the area. According to Suyasa: "What's clear is that an investigation must be undertaken at the location. The (current) condition is worrying. The BLH must visit hotels and restaurants suspected of discharging sewage and, if proven to be violators, action must be taken against them."

The North Kuta legislator blames the raw sewage discharging onto Kuta's famous beach as being caused by hotels and restaurants in the area who are ignoring regulations which require every place of business to have its own sewage capture and treatment system. For hotels and new investments, in fact, licensing requirements require detailed environmental impact plans and facilities to handle any sewage produced by each enterprise.

A visit by a group of lawmakers to the seaside gutter on the edge of Jalan Double Six shocked the group who saw evidence of both kitchen-chemical waste and raw human sewage flowing into the waters of the popular public beach.

As reported by NusaBali, while inspecting the area surrounding the nearby Puri Naga Hotel, Suyasa proclaimed that the hotel was sending its dirty dishwater to a nearby drain. This charge was denied by a staff member of the hotel who opened a cover over a local drain showing waste flowing by from locations even further to the north.

Suyasa promised to call the Chief of the LBH , Putra Suteja, to obtain his explanation for the sewage discharge. Showing his growing frustration, Suyasa complained, "this problem has gone on for years without resolution."
