“After hearing a lot of dead fish, we did the water check. What we see is DO, the decline in oxygen levels, “said the Dirut PDAM Surya Sembada Surabaya, Mujiaman, Tuesday (22/7).

Because in Karang Pilang there are PDAM 1, 2 and 3, it immediately takes the handling by adding air, and using chemicals for precipitation. The treatment has been done since Tuesday morning.

However, until now the condition of the water flowing to the society is fairly safe.
