(6/4/2007)

The Indonesian-language Denpost reports that a task force comprised of the Coordinating Team for the Control of Pollution (TKP2LH), members of the Foundation for Sanur Development (YPS-Yayasan Pembangunan Sanur) the Working Secretariat for the Rescue and Safeguarding of the Environment (SKPPLH)and members of the Sanur village community have issued a two-month deadline to three leading hotels in Sanur to get their environmental record-keeping in order and correct deficiencies in their waste management systems and procedures.

Cited for urgent correction at a joint meeting held in Sanur on Thursday, May 31, 2007 were 3 hotels - the Hotel Inna Grand Bali Beach, Bali Hyatt and the Hotel Sanur Beach.

The task force's meeting was chaired by Ir. Yeni Trihandani, accompanied by Ir. Ketut Suandi of the local Environmental Service. Also in attendance were the Chairman of the YPS IB Gede Sidharta Putra, the Chairman of the SKPPLH Made Mangku, members of the TKP2LH task force, representatives of the local Board of Health, and community leaders from Sanur.

Hotel Sanur Beach

According to the Denpost, the Hotel Sanur Beach received the most numerous negative citations from the task force and was ordered to urgently compile and present an environmental management and monitoring plan (UKL/UPL) and to also renew their now-expired Work Place Permit (SITU) and No Disturbance Permit (HO).

The Sanur Beach Hotel was also ordered to close a bypass pipe draining into a local estuary and to re-divert and recycle rain water now being fed into the hotels Waste Management System (IPAL).

The hotel was also reminded that the IPAL must be in continuous operation with results of water samples formally reported to the Government once every six months.

Following the report of the task force, an urgent water quality report is due within 2 months of the latest findings which revealed pollutants present in the Hotel's system in excess of the maximum limits set by a decree from the Governor of Bali.

Bali Hyatt Hotel

The Bali Hyatt was also given two months by the task force to make current its UKL/UPL and SITU/HO documentation and bring the operating parameters of its Waster Management System (IPAL) into line with strict limits set by the Governor.

Inna Grand Bali Beach

While all pollution and environmental documentation were found to be in order at Bali's oldest international hotel, the task force determined that the effluent from the IPAL was outside established limits, with Management given two months to correct the problem.

The hotel's operators were also ordered to re-divert overflow from the swimming pool, now flowing into the ocean, to the IPAL for water treatment.

A Strong Message to Other Hotels

The Denpost quoted the Head of the Local Environmental Agency, Suandi, who said he hoped the work of the task force would serve as a warning to all in Sanur to better manage waste and pollution. Reflecting a widespread feeling among the people working and living in Sanur to get on top of the pollution problem, the Director of Engineering for the Bali Hyatt, I Made Sumantara, told the press, "we are committed to create a cleaner environment for Sanur."
