1. According to Adi, G. N. (2018) PDAM Surakarta has tried hard to provide resident in central java with clean water for two weeks while the river is drying as time goes. It already stopped the operational of water treatment plants, making the resident to take the alternative route by buying gallon of water. On top of that the water distribution from water company is still unsure and there still no permanent solution. The local Government said that it is hard to take care off this problem because the source of contaminated water/river is textile waste in Samin River in Sukoharjo. The dry season on that time make it harder for the local government to solve the problem and make that year is the worst because of poor water treatment.
