Beaches In Jembrana, West Bali have been polluted by huge piles of waste that are drifting down rivers due to heavy rains. While there was originally a debate that river pollution was blamed on mass tourism, that isn’t the case due to the borders being closed.
The impact of the heavy rains are being seen on some beaches in the Jembrana region. Pebuahan Beach that is located in Banyubiru Village has been polluted by waste that was carried by the rivers.
“Many logs, tree branches, garbage and plastic is polluting our beach, causing the water to be covered in the waste.” said one of the residents.
Nearby residents said that this is actually an annual problem in the Jembrana coastal area as the rain intensity tends to increase at the end of the year.
“I must admit that this is a common problem in our area, but apparently the issue is even worse this year, as a large amounts of waste is covering the water from the shore to the open ocean.” said the resident.
Tourists are reluctant to visit the beach in Jembrana region at this time of year. “The number of visitors of the beach has significantly reduced due to the bad weather recently, as well as the huge pile of garbage on the beach that is making people feel uncomfortable.” he concluded.
The residents hope that the regional government can solve this problem immediately to help the local people in the area.
