I found in internet that citarum river is the dirtiest river in the world.I found it in a forum and then i search by google,in fact citarum looks like TPA in image searching.It is true that citarum is the most polluted river in the world and world knew about it with many trash there.I cant believe it!!! This is absolutely disgusting! we should really be ashamed of themselves, how can we live like that, why doesn’t the government and it’s people try and do something,even a little bit at a time. This is bad for everyone not just Indonesia,Just shocking.It’s unknown whether the Citarum really is the most polluted river in the world, since no study has ever been done to conclude such a thing. There are many other rivers that are also incredibly polluted, and many of them are located in Asia.Electronics make up the bulk of it, and as today’s equipment becomes obsolete and we purchase tomorrow’s to replace it. Many of the world’s rivers may see fates similar to that of the Citarum River if we don’t begin a major overhaul of our sanitation systems, and help other countries with their waste management as much as we can.
Citarum is located in west java,many people there trhow the trash into the river so what then,the river became so bad and dirtiest all over the world,that is wow.There are so many kind of the trash in the water of this river such as plastic, loaded with chemicals and human waste.The trash that floats on top is the result of the lack of a trash pickup service in the area. All of the houses, factories, and other buildings along the river pour human waste into it for lack of anyplace else to put it.Rapid industrialization in the ‘80s is what led to this river,more than 500 factories line the banks of the 200-mile river, many of them leaking textile treatment chemicals into the water.The villagers can’t make money off of fishing anymore, so they’ve turned to picking through the trash that floats on the surface to find items that can be sold or traded.It looks like a hell at the midle million people in our country,why must our country`s rivers become like that.So long before, the Citarum River was a peaceful waterway where wildlife enjoyed the clean, fresh water and villagers caught fish and made a living off the rice paddies.Government should make changes for this big problem how to make our citysm aware with all trash around and how useful river for living.I think the government does not have a serious idea to solve this problem although world people shock and nock about this proble,more over our neighbor country who laugh for us in their forum site.How poor our country to become the dirtiest country in the world.We have too many population but we dont have good living facilities such as enough recycle bins in any area so the citysm has no choice to throw the trash to river.
Citarum is not the only one dirty river we have,as you know moreover almost all rivers in Indonesia were polluted now.we just see how dirty our beach along padang city beach,it is not called beach anymore but trash station.Many people enjoy the beach but they cant keep it from the trash and some polluted else.How we can solve the problem about holding the trash in our environment which is in otherhand world people actively make earth greener and solve the climate change.Our local governor must be serious to make it better without waiting from centre governor`s ordering about it that not all problem must be solved by our president but also need suporting from local goverment.
