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.
