Bali Daily (Jakarta Post) describes Denpasar’s critical shortage of water and official hopes that a worsening crisis will be averted with two new water treatment plants scheduled to come on line in early 2013.

Denpasar currently derives its water supply from the polluted Ayung River to serve some 70,676 consumers after an elaborate water purification process. Supply of fresh water has become sufficiently critical that the State Water Board (PDAM) has put 3,000 new connections to the water system on hold until new water supplies become available.

Two new water plants set for operation early in 2013 will bring water from the Petanu River in Gianyar regency and the Penet River in the Badung regency.

The two new water plants are part of a private consortium - Sarbargitaku - covering Tabanan, Klungkung, Denpasar and Badung. Total cost of the entire water project covering four regencies in Bali is put at Rp. 1,305 trillion (US$139.63 million).

Denpasar is currently running a fresh water deficit of 54 liters per second. This will be addressed via the two new water plants that will provide 300 liters of new water supply per second.

Subsequent phases in the water project will bring new water supplies on line for the people of Gianyar, Klungkung, Denpasar, Badung and Tabanan.
