Keep Water Supply Abundant Until 2045, BP Batam Reminds the Community to Save Water
The availability of water in 6 Batam City reservoirs is currently running low. water availability in Batam City remains abundant, at least until 2045.
TRIBUNBATAM.id, BATAM - Water is one of the most important natural resource requirements for humans. Almost all activities in human life need water, namely food, household and industrial activities.
One reason for the reduced availability of raw water in these reservoirs is due to the decreasing intensity of rainfall.
Meanwhile, according to calculations, the intensity of rainfall that fell during the months of April-May was reduced from generally above 2000 mm per year, to below that number.
"Rainwater that falls in Batam used to be above 2000 mm per year, is the same as Bogor which is the City of Rain. Well, for the past two years, rainfall in Batam has only been below 2000 mm per year, so it has decreased," said Binsar.
The rainwater that falls is then accommodated in the catchment area, such as drainage and ridges, then flows into six reservoirs throughout Batam City.
The six reservoirs that hold the water are Sei Harapan, Mukakuning, Sei Ladi, Tembesi, Duriangkang and Nongsa reservoirs.
Because it is very dependent on the reservoir that holds rainwater as a source of water, Binsar added, that the people of Batam City must jointly maintain the conditions around the reservoir and the catchment area.
"We must protect the water catchment area, the dam, and the forest from garbage and waste, and from BP Batam itself will make efforts to greening, fencing, and guarding the area around the reservoir," said Binsar.
The six dams are the only water sources that meet the needs of around 1.3 million people and 24 industrial areas.
For this reason, Batam Facility and Environmental Business Agency, advised the community, to always maintain the cleanliness conditions in the area around the reservoir, and always be efficient in using water.
This is applied so that the continuity of water availability in Batam City remains abundant, at least until 2045. (TribunBatam.id/ Hening Sekar Utami)
