Former DKI Governor Jakarta Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) made a number of proposals to overcome the floods in Jakarta. For Ahoka, one of the keys, don't let the garbage cover the water pump.
Ahok told me during his term of office as governor of DKI Jakarta from 2014 to 2017. He said the water pump DKI Jakarta is good.
If my experience is actually Jakarta, the pump is fine, the waterfront is fine, so be careful. Usually when the same dry season rains, it will usually cover the filter, ”Ahok told reporters at Dinas Rumah Chairman of DKI Jakarta DPRD, Jalan Imam Bonjol, Jakarta, Tuesday (April 30, 2019).
Ahok always makes sure that the pump filter is not covered by garbage. If necessary, 24 hours of heavy equipment are in standby mode.
"We've always put heavy equipment. If the filter closes, the volume of water can't drop quickly, and of course the orange soldiers have to go around, the blue units have to go around. falls late, "said Ahok.
Ahok also recalled that the pump is not turned on late when there are signs of flooding. If it is too late, the water will not be drawn to maximum.
"I'm my person, my theory lives up to the late pump, it's too high it can't go. I think it might be flooded because it's a pump late, I don't know," Ahok said.
