Government opens bidding for construction of three dams

Indonesia: The Public Works and Public Housing Ministry will commence bidding soon for three irrigation projects to help farmers in Pamukkulu in South Sulawesi, Sidan in Bali and Way Apu in Papua increase productivity.

Bidding for the projects were intended to commence in March or May, but further inspection of the soil structure was required for the safety of the project, said the ministry's water resources director general, Imam Santoso, on Friday.

The inspection is based on the request of the National Committee for Big Dams (KNI-BB).

"A small leak in the dam is dangerous," Imam said during a press briefing in Jakarta on Friday.

Out of 65 dams to be developed up to 2022, the ministry finished seven dams from 2014 to 2016, Imam said, adding that this year, the ministry was expected to finish five more.

There are 209 dams with total capacity of 12.62 billion cubic meters of water that can serve 761,542 hectares or 10.7 percent of total agriculture fields in the country.

"In 2019, we will have 238 dams, with total water capacity of 14.42 billion cubic meters. They can serve 934,533 hectares of agriculture fields," Imam said.
