President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono inaugurated Indonesia's largest sewage processing system in the Suwung district of Denpasar on Saturday, June 14, 2008. According to TEMPO Interaktif, the Denpasar Sewerage Development Project (DSDP) is targeted to support Bali's role as a world tourism center.

At the Bali inauguration ceremony President Yudhoyono said: "Many tourists visiting natural places like Bali insist that the destination be clean and healthy." In addition the project is hoped to improve the health of the local population while echoing the United Nation's "International Year of Sanitation."

The Indonesian President told the audience attending the ceremony that many countries envied Bali. The President revealed that a certain country in the Middle East has attempted to build an area resembling Bali, even to the point of duplicating beaches and the local flora. Nonetheless, said President Yudhoyono, no place can compare to Bali if the people of the Island maintain a commitment to keeping the island paradise clean.

The inauguration held on June 14th marks the completion of the first-phase of a three-phase program. The first phase was funded by the Central Government, the Provincial Government, the City of Denpasar and locals from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) at a total cost of Rp. 600 billion (US$64.5 million).

The new sewerage system is able to serve 250,000 people in the Seminyak, Legian, Kuta and Sanur areas of South Bali along a piping system running 129 kilometers. The second phase is scheduled to be built in 2009 with an equivalent amount of funding required. The entire project is scheduled for completion in 2014.

The Minister of Public Works, Djoko Kirmanto, said sewage handling systems are currently being built in Medan, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Solo and Cirebon.
