It is feared that this could result in siltation and also could result in blocked drainage channels.

The main drainage channel that runs in Graha Nusa Batam housing complex, is a channel of water from Batuaji, heading to the sea.

Trash that is washed away by the water will drift up to the sea.

It is feared that this could lead to degradation and damage to marine ecosystem.

Previously, Batuaji Ridwan sub-district chief urged the public not to throw away any garbage, aside from causing siltation.

Such rubbish can cause drainage channels to clog up.

While Batam city government is currently incessantly normalizing dredging and cleaning of canals.

"If the community continues to dispose of rubbish arbitrarily, it could be the drainage could cause flooding," Ridwan said. (Tribunbatam.id/Ian Sitanggang)
