The alleged construction of a water sports recreational complex at Nusa Dua at the Bali Tourism Development Complex (BTDC) is coming under scrutiny of members of Badung regency's House of Representatives (DPRD-Badung).

Reports in the Bali Post and Nusa Bali suggests that the purported project lacks the needed permits and licenses and is suspected of being built in violation of set-back zoning rules by standing too close to the high-water mark. A report describing the presence of the project said to be standing between the beach at Nusa Dua and the Nusa Dua Peninsula "Island" has been filed with Commission A of the DPRD-Badung.

I Made Duama, the secretary of Commission A, told the press that if the BTDC has built the water park illegally, such actions must stop and the project must be brought into conformance with the law. Duama added, "we (the legislature) will soon undertake a visit to the site."

A member of the DPRD-Badung, I Made Darma, added that if such a product is being constructed within the BTDC complex, that does not exempt the water park from the need to obtain all the required licenses and permits. He also said that if the project is being built too near to the water line, it will deny the local population access to beach-side recreation.

The head of the infrastructure section of the Badung Tourism Office, I Nyoman Suardana, told the press that he had no knowledge of the BTDC Water Park project, insisting that no application for licenses and permits have been received by his office.

When the Bali Post sought comments from the CEO of the BTDC, I Made Mandra kept his comments to a minimum, succinctly sating there is no water park being built inside the BTDC Complex. "There is no development of a water park," declared Mandra.
