Sukarno Jurnasyanto - Residents in North Jakarta’s slum area always have a problem with clean water. Since 15 years, they can't consume clean water from their own wells because it's infiltrated by salty sea water. The government has moved them to some cheap flats, but it still has not solved the problem. Many flats don't have water supplies, they must install pipes to get water from their water pumps. Some aid from NGOs for a piped water network failed because of resistance, threats and violence from the water mafia.
