Jembrana Asks Japan to Help Overcome Sewage Problem

Officials from Bali's provincial district of Jembrana have met with Toshiaki Mori, deputy chairman of the Japanese Industrial Promotion Institute of Yamaguchi, to discuss sewage treatment.

"Indeed, one of our fish processing plants is using the sewage treatment technology in Jembrana, but we wish for better technology, such as an integrated sewage treatment system," said Jembrara regent I Putu Artha here on Saturday.

According to Putu, in meeting with Toshiaki Mori, his group also talked about waste management, including the handling of plastics.

"The Japanese company is ready to help if we need technology in handling sewage treatment and waste management," the regent stated.

Jembrana has initiated a plan to launch waste banks program in the community and schools, said Putu.

"In the schools, we directed students to save garbage, which they gather in the school environment," Putu explained.

Putu said, after the first meeting, that Bali officials will visit Japan to observe sewage treatment systems. (antara)
