The main local economic activities of Bandung

General theory
Metropolitan Area:
Bandung Regency
• Using integrated water resources management between groundwater basin and river
Bandung City basin to manage groundwater resources
• Decentralization, empowering local government to manage groundwater resources
• Enacting the law and regulation of groundwater extraction, preservation and
Map of Bandung Basin Densely populated BMA
• Shifting the role and function of government from provider to enabler of water supply
• Changing the pattern of development and management water resources from
Government centrist to Private-Public Participation
• Changing the government service from bureaucratic-normative to responsive-flexible
Water Potency, Demand and Use
• Changing the government policy from top-down to bottom up
Ø Water potency of Bandung River basin
- Surface water : 1.71 billion m3
- Spring water : 87.86 million m 3
- Ground water : 79.60 million m 3
Ø In 2005, water used by industrial sector was 234
million m3
Ø Industries demand : increasing 10% per years
Ø Population projection of Bandung Metropolitan area in
2025 is 9.7 million people
Ø The population need of water in 2025 is 706 million m 3

Textile industry in Bandung Hydrological Cycle

Existing groundwater use Associated problem

1. Water table depletion 2. Land subsidence 3. Deterioration groundwater
Wet industry domination
Lack of infrastructure (textiles)
There is no specific quality
institution providing raw
for supplying surface
water for industry
water from WSE

The Increase of
groundwater demand Groundwater
Using groundwater inexpensive than other
source water sources

The speed of groundwater depletion

• Land subsidence was most Based on laboratory test in 2005,
- Mid-
Mid-level aquifer : 0.12 to 8.76 m/ year various location in the Bandung basin
severe in industrial area:
- Deep-
Deep-level aquifer : 1.44 to 12.48 m/year
reached 24 cm/year revealed that 78% from 50 samples
• It results from the increase did not meet the standard and 70%
industrial activities & settlements exceeded the fecal coliform (bacteria)

vs abstraction period 1900-2004
• The tendency of increasing
groundwater demand

groundwater use in industry abstraction for domestic use (1993-

• Average Groundwater use : 52.07%. • Continue to increase
• Continue to increase

Decentralization Issue in Groundwater Management:
