The Wisnu Foundation of Bali is urging PT Indonesia Power – a division of the State Power Board (PLN) – to under a serious and urgent environmental clean up of the damage to Bali’s mangrove forest near Benoa harbor caused by a burst fuel pipe.

The chairman of the Wisnu Foundation, Made Suarnata, told the State New Agency Antara: “PT Indonesian Power must take responsibility for causing this damage to the environment. This contamination constitutes a violation of laws established for protecting the environment.”

Suarnata accepted that the leaking fuel pipe was an accident, but insisted this fact does not diminish the responsibility of PT Indonesian Power to be responsible for completely cleaning up the grease and oil now damaging the mangrove.

The Wisnu Foundation is also calling on PT Indonesian Power to plan trees in the mangrove to replace those killed by the leaking oil.

“If the lingering elements of oil are left in the mangrove, the mangrove will die. Proof of this are the dying leaves foretelling the coming death of the trees,” Said Suarnata.

The head of the environmental group acknowledged that PT Indonesian Power undertook an initial clean up of the oil spill when it first occurred, but said remnants of the oil still remained that are adhering to plants inside the mangrove forest.

The Wisnu Foundation wants PT Indonesian Power to be more serious in addressing the clean up of the oil spill, employing special vacuums to suck up the remaining oil spill if necessary.
