Protection forest or conservation forest that has changed its function and the number of land clearing is considered to be disturbing the continuity of the availability and quality of raw water in the reservoir.
Deputy Chairman of Commission IV DPR RI, Dedi Mulyadi highlighted this.
Dedi asked the Ministry of Forestry and Environment to take quick steps to handle it.
Dedi said that the slow handling of environmental issues would have fatal consequences.
According to Dedi, the local apparatus should've been able to quickly take preventive measures before more serious damage occurred.
As is known, as a result of illegal land clearing, the forest which is used as water infiltration has turned into agricultural land, dense settlements, and excavation of land, as well as sand mining in the Tembesi reservoir catchment area.
Likewise for land clearing in the water catchment area in Duriangkang for tourism behind the Panbil Industrial Area.
The clearing of Muka Kuning Park is a water catchment area for Duriangkang Reservoir, Sei Ladi Reservoir.
The reservoir in the tourist park is considered to have damaged the quality of the reservoir's raw water.
In fact, the Sei Ladi Reservoir and the reservoir in the Muka Kuning natural tourism park have experienced cloudiness due to land sedimentation that has decreased from land clearing. (*)
