Bening Saguling - Citarum River Conservation Project
Background :
Citarum is the longest river in West Java runs over 300
kilometres from the Wayang Mountain to the Java Sea. There are 30 million people rely on the water source for
agriculture, water supply,fishery, industry, sewerage, electricity, etc. However, unregulated factory growth
since the area’s rapid industrialisation in the 1980s has
choked the Citarum with both human and industrial
waste. The 5 million people who lived in the river basin
are directly affected. Over 200 textile factories line the
river banks and contaminate the river with lead, mercury, arsenic and other toxins, changing its colour
and lending the area an acrid odour. Moreover, the
river is also polluted and filed with trash such plastic, styrofoam, even dead animals. Project Aims :

environment conservation, social and
