Impact of Draining Storage Tank Sedimentation, 200 Liter Per Second IPA Shutdown for Five Days

PENAJAJ-The North Penajam Paser Danum Taka Drinking Water (AMDT) Regional Public Company (Perumda) has scheduled the temporary closure of the Lawelawe Water Treatment Plant (IPA), Penajam District, PPU with a capacity of 200 liters of water per second for five days, starting from 15 to 19 February 2024. This closure is carried out for the work of draining sedimentation tanks, intake tanks, and raw water storage areas managed by regionally owned enterprises (BUMD).

“The closure of the 200 liter per second IPA was carried out to drain the sedimentation tank. This drainage needs to be carried out to maintain the quality of the water distributed to customers,” said Director of Perumda AMDT PPU Abdul Rasyid, to the Kaltim Post, Tuesday (12/2).

Abdul Rasyid explained that during the closure of the 200 liter per second IPA, Perumda AMDT PPU would prepare a backup IPA with a capacity of 50 liters of water per second. “This reserve IPA is expected to be able to meet customers’ water needs during the closure of the IPA at 200 liters of water per second,” he explained. He also said that it is time to clean the main raw water tank pond because the sedimentation height has reached 1-1.5 meters, which has now been disrupting the quality of clean water distribution to customers numbering thousands of household connections.

However, Abdul Rasyid yesterday appealed to customers to save water during the closure of the 200 liter per second IPA. “We urge customers to save water during the closure of the 200 liter per second IPA. “This is important to ensure water is available for basic needs during the closure of the IPA at 200 liters per second,” he stressed.

He revealed that the next stage after draining was to replace the quartz sand or main filter which consists of a 6-bath sedimentation tank and a 6-bath filterization tank. “Next are chemical pump cleaning and IPA cleaning. “Considering the size of the units and areas that will be managed, the shutdown process will take place from 14 to 19 February 2024 for the normalization process,” he explained.

Officially, he continued, Perumda AMDT PPU has made an announcement that this work will be carried out which will result in a reduction in service capacity from 200 liters of water per second to 50 liters of water per second. In his announcement to the public he appealed to customers to fill tanks to reserve clean water until the activity process was complete. He said that the draining of the raw material storage tanks at Lawelawe IPA had an impact on 10 service areas in Penajam District. (far)
