In the next five years, the local drinking water companies (PDAMs) are expected to develop 10 million new house connections. Whereas the current leakage of water produced by the PDAMs is still high, i.e. 37 percent. This was revealed during an event titled “Indonesian-Danish Water Days 2009” in Jakarta on Tuesday. The leakage, according to the Public Works Ministry, occurs in various forms, such as careless calculation of water usage and water stealing.
