(5/25/2013)

Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) says efforts are being made to urge hotels and restaurant to connect to a central sewage and wastewater treatment system in Bali.

The Denpasar Sewerage Development Project (DSDP), established at substantial public expense, is meeting resistance from local business who prefer to pump their wastewater into local ditches, septic tanks and the ocean rather than be burdened with the cost of a monthly sewerage bill.

Nyoman Sueta, chief of DSDP, said: “We are urging the mayor and regents to encourage more hotels and restaurants in their areas to take part in this wastewater management system. Roughly, now only 10 percent of the hotels in Bali are connected to the DSDP system, while others may have their own wastewater management installations or dump their wastewater into open waters.”

From an estimated 1,319 star-rated hotels, the DSDP records only 130 accommodation providers in Denpasar, Sanur and Kuta are connected to their system.

The DSDP has been on operation since 2008 and has a total of 8,467 customers, targeting to add 7,500 more customers in the current year. The majority of connections are to private households.

The cost of a monthly connection to the sewage system for a private household is Rp. 25,000 (US$2.50). Star-rated hotels could pay up to Rp. 100,000 (US$10) per room per night while restaurants are liable to pay Rp. 700,000 (US$70), depending on the establishment’s seating capacity.

The deputy chairman of the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali), I Gusti Ngurah Suryawijaya, claims the current rate for a sewerage connection is too high for hotels and should be linked to actual occupancy instead of room totals.

Rai insists there is a strong desire to use the new sewerage systems, adding: “For hotel managements like us, the beach and the culture are the two most important assets of our businesses. We would never want to see our ocean polluted by waste. So please share with us the names and locations of the hotels that dump their wastewater into the sea, so that our association can reprimand them.”

He also pointed out that many star-rated hotels in Bali have their own wastewater treatment facilities with smaller properties using septic tanks.
The Bali Environmental Agency (BLH), meanwhile, said that treated wastewater from a number of hotels, hospitals and other businesses in Bali do not meat acceptable standards for reintroduction to oceans and streams.
