Abstract

The Citarum River is failing to support the millions of Indonesians who live along the river basin because of how polluted it is. The water is full of trash, detergents, human waste as well as hazardous chemicals that are affecting the health and lives of these people. In the Village of Sukaharja the people live under extremely impoverished conditions and do not have an effective waste management solution. Therefore, all of the trash and waste of the people who live along the river basin ends up in the water. This is making the already polluted river even more contaminated. If nothing is done to prevent the waste from entering the water, the Citarum River will continue being one of the worlds most polluted rivers and will not be able to support the millions of Indonesians who depend on the river for survival.
