Fascinating. Cesspool alrite.
Hey Jexkpat , suggest you start drinking imported bottled water.

"With virtually no sewerage system or waste treatment plants, most of Jakarta's liquid waste is left to flow downriver to the sea or is kept in septic tanks."
"Around 70 percent of the water in Indonesia's cities is contaminated with domestic waste, with 78 percent of Jakarta's river deemed polluted as of 2006, according to data provided by the administration."


There are more than a million septic tanks in Jakarta, which has a population of almost 10 million people.

But let's focus on Island of Java, where you live. It is mountainous, accounting for many a Garuda Airliners with questionable maintenance records flown by equally questionable pilots to crash into its hillsides.

Jakarta is one of the most densely populated cities in the world, the sheer density and weight of populace has made much of the city to sink below sea level, resulting in frequent sewer backflows and rampant floods. As noted in an earlier thread topic, majority of the citizens are without access to clean water. Trash piles up everywhere, as a result of city's infrastructure unable to catch up with ever-growing migration from other islands. The trash mounds mimic volcanic mountain range of the island as self-combusting trash mountains further enhance the island's landscape.

Yes, now I see why you could not imagine what I had drawn. The hillsides and mountaintops are indeed dangerous, what with crashing airliners and volcanoes, both natural and man-made.


My bad, and thanks for the opportunity to understand the country beyond 'Bengawan Solo'

^^^^No problem, all we drink is bottled water and the house water we shower, wash our dishes clothes ect ect with is as well filtered to an advanced degree, the only thing the filter does not do is desalinate. As well we have our house water tested every thing months by a reputable lab to make sure the filter is doing it's job and they check it for everything.

Fires choke Indonesian peatlands - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
"In the mid-1990s, former Indonesian president Suharto launched a plan to convert one million hectares of peat swamp forests into rice fields to achieve rice self-sufficiency in the south-east Asian nation.

It was an ambitious idea, but fell to pieces rather soon. Thousands of kilometres of channels dug for irrigation instead sucked dry vast areas of cleared peatland, leaving the combustible carbon-rich substance exposed to the hot Kalimantan sun.

In 1997, when the country suffered one of its worst droughts, the peatlands went up in flames, sending a choking haze billowing across the region to Singapore, Malaysia and southern Thailand.

Ten years on, Indonesia's peat swamp forests still burn regularly in the dry season, often shrouding the region in thick smoke and causing misery to millions. Experts say the haze problem will only get worse if the peat fires continue to rage."

Kalimantan is far away from Jakarta and the winds always blow the smoke towards Singapore and Malaysia, not saying it is right, but just fact
