(9/2/2011)

Bali is failing to optimize the use of its fresh water resources, adding further pressure to the current water shortage expected to go critical by 2015. According to Beritabali.com, Bali is suffering a shortfall in its fresh water supply equal to 1,500 liters every second.

The chairman of the Center of Study for Sustainable Development at Bali’s Udayana University, Dr. Dharma Putra blames the island's fresh water deficit on increased housing and the growing number of hotel rooms in Bali. In the face of this shortage, however, Puta says Bali has unexploited fresh water supplies flowing through the island and into the sea via the Tukad Unda and Tukad Penet.

“Just consider starting from the Telaga Waja, Unda, Petanu, Oos, Ayung, Terus Penet – all these waters are being thrown away. The only river being exploited is the Tukad (River) Badung via the estuary damn which could produce 900 liters of water per second for the Nusa Dua area but is currently only producing 300 liters of water every second due to infrastructure limitations,” explained Dr. Dharma Putra.

Dharma Putra is recommending to the provincial government of Bali to urgently add infrastructure capable of optimizing the water nature produces via the island’s rivers. Putra estimates that 1,800 liters per second are being loss from the Tukad Unda and 300 liters per second from the Tukad Penet.
