Water Quality In Water Hyacinth Planting Trial Location Tested

As the continuation of water hyacinth planting trial, Jakarta Environment (LH) Department tested water quality in Bhisma Inlet 3 connecting (PHB) channel, Papanggo Urban Village, Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta.

Jakarta LH Department’s North Jakarta Water Body Cleanliness Management Unit Head, Lambas Sigalingging said that his team has planted water hyacinth seeds on that channel since December 2018.

“Water quality test will be held three times within three months. This month, we conduct the first test,” he mentioned, Monday (1/7).

Actually it can be seen that water condition in this channel becomes better after it is planted with water hyacinth. But water testing is still needed to ensure the water quality improvement.

According to him, current channel’s water is more clearer than before. This channel also doesn’t smell bad at certain times.

“It is estimated the water testing result can be received on the next two weeks,” he stated.
