BANDUNG - One of two water tunnels in Curug Jompong in Margaasih, Bandung Regency was opened manually. The opening of the tunnel is believed to have reduced flood discharge in the South Bandung region.
West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil said the tunnel was opened manually, but only one.
"One has not yet been made, only next year. But just one has been able to accelerate the reduction of flood discharge, "he said at Gedung Sate Bandung, Thursday (12/19).
He said, from public reports, the water discharge had drastically reduced after the tunnel was opened.
The South Bandung Flood which had decided on the Dayeuhkolot-Baleendah-Banjaran road had receded. But the puddle of water still submerged residents' housing. jo
