Dam the Waters

Indonesia takes the commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals seriously. The Public Works and Housing Minister Basuki Hadimuljono claims that Indonesia’s water supply is more than adequate at 2.7 trillion cubic meters per year with 222 billion cubic meters being pumped into homes, animal farms, fisheries and irrigation and 691 billion cubic meters being used by the rest (industrial/ commercial/ institutional). Thus the Government has laid out a case for damming water to store surplus water for “rainy days”.

The eight dams aimed to be completed in 2020 are located in Paselloreng in South Sulawesi, Ladongi in Southeast Sulawesi, Tapin in South Kalimantan, Way Sekampung in Lampung, Kuningan in West Java and three dams in East Java – Bendo in Ponorogo, Tukul in Pacitan and Gongseng in Bojonegoro.
