(9/9/2012)

The head of the provincial Public Works Department (PU) in Bali, Ketut Artika, has underlined the serious problem posed by beach erosion to major stretches of beaches around Bali.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Artika said that while the lead responsibility for coastal erosion lies with the Department of Riverways for Bali and Nusa Penida (Balai Wilayah Sungai Bali Nusa Penida), his office is also involved in trying to control the erosion of the island’s coastlines.

Describing what has, to some extent, been a losing effort, Artika said,
“Our simultaneous efforts have failed to cover all the affected areas, but we continue to work to keep the problem under control.”

Efforts to curtail erosion are being done by provincial authorities, and hotels with technical permission granted by the Department of Public Works.

The Department of Waterways for Bali-Nusa Penida of the Directorate General of Water Resources at the Department of Public Works records that in 2009 erosion affected 181.7 kilometers (41%) of Bali’s total shoreline of 437.7 kilometers. 22 years earlier, in 1987 erosion in Bali touched on only 49.95 km (11.4%) of the island’s coastline. Extrapolated, this means Bali is suffering erosion on an additional 5.98 kilometers of coastline each year.

Coastal erosion in Bali destroys existing infrastructure, and depletes agricultural and sacred lands. Among the areas affected are Kuta Beach, Sanur Beach, Padang Galak (Denpasar), Pantai Lebih (Gianyar), Pantai Candidasa (Karangasem), Pantai Ujung (Karangasem), Pantai Lovina (Buleleng), and Pantai Cupel and Banyumala (Jembrana).
