Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan 6/9 (AntaranewsKalsel) - Banjarmasin City wastewater treatment company PD-PAL has a sophisticated feces cleaning truck called "Jetting Combi Cap".
The PD-PAL Banjarmasin Director Rahmatullah here on Wednesday said the primary wastewater network cleaning truck is an assistance from the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing by 2017.
"The cleaning truck car will immediately be operated to smooth PD-PAL operations at the sewage installation network points," he said.
Rahmatullah said the waste cleaner truck is the most sophisticated owned by waste-company, even across South Kalimantan.
"This truck is equipped with hydraulic and can clean the waste pipe far enough to overcome the blockages that occur," he explained.
According to Rahmatullah, there are three cleaning trucks obtained by PD-PAL Banjarmasin from the central government.
He said the trucks are very important to support operations because currently, the PD-PAL's customers are more than 6,000.
"Moreover, many customers outside the pipeline network to the waste processing house, which is using septic tanks of communal waste," he said.
According to him, PD-PAL keeps trying to open the network to citizen settlements, because PD-PAL customers are only a few percent of the number of customers of local water company (PDAM).
He admitted that it is very difficult to awaken the public to the importance of managing household waste for environmental sustainability, water and land from waste.
