KADEMANGAN – Kebersihan lingkungan di Kota Probolinggo juga menjadi perhatian serius pemerintah setempat. Untuk memberikan edukasi kepada masyarakat, Wali Kota Hadi Zainal Abidin bersama Wawali Mochammad Soufis Subri melakukan kerja bakti di sepanjang sungai di Jalan KH Fadhol – Jalan Brantas, Kecamatan Kademangan, Sabtu (7/9) pagi.

Kerja bakti itu dipimpin Camat Kademangan Pujo Agung Satrio dan diikuti Kepala Dinas PUPR Amin Fredy, Danramil Kapten Eko Saputro, anggota TNI, Polri, lurah, ketua RW dan RT, serta masyarakat di lingkungan Kecamatan Kademangan.

Sejatinya, sungai tersebut dibawah naungan Provinsi Jawa Timur. Namun untuk normalisasi dan pembersihan juga menjadi tanggung jawab Pemerintah Kota Probolinggo dan masyarakat setempat. Sebelum dilakukan kerja bakti, Dinas PUPR sudah melakukan normalisasi menggunakan eksavator selama beberapa hari.

Camat Pujo menegaskan, kerja bakti saban Jumat yang dilaksanakan keliling ke wilayah Kecamatan Kademangan akan digeser ke pembersihan sungai. “Selain bersih-bersih sekaligus pengecatan. Kami berharap kegiatan ini dapat merubah perilaku masyarakat tidak membuang sampah sembarangan. Karena banyak sampah yang seharusnya tidak dibuang disini, seperti pampers, pembalut dan lain sebagainya,” ujar mantan Kabid Aset di BPPKAD ini.

Sungai sepanjang kurang lebih 1 kilo meter itu ditargetkan selesai sepertiganya, kemudian bergeser ke sisi selatan. Saat meninjau ke selatan sungai menggunakan perahu karet, Wawali Subri bersama Camat Pujo dan Danramil Eko, didapati banyak sampah yang ada di sungai. Selain itu, ada limbah BAB yang langsung ke sungai.

“Selanjutnya ya kami akan pikirkan, bagaimana penanganan yang tepat. Disesuaikan dengan program yang ada, supaya tidak ada lagi warga yang BAB langsung dibuang ke sungai. Mungkin dengan septictank komunal atau alternatif lainnya,” ujar Wawali Subri, usai meninjau lebih dekat kondisi sungai tersebut.

Sementara itu, Wali Kota Habib Hadi mengharapkan masyarakat mempunyai kesadaran menjaga lingkungannya sendiri. Pemerintah sudah memberikan contoh dan memulai seharusnya masyarakat juga ikut menyadari kondisi lingkungannya.

“Saya sudah menandatangani, mengaktifkan kembali aturan sanksi bagi mereka yang membuang sampah sembarangan. Siapapun akan kami tindak. Tolong semua ikut membantu menyosialisasikan kepada masyarakat. Gerakan ini bisa mengedukasi masyarakat dan menjadi contoh bagi warga lainnya,” jelas Habib Hadi.

Ia juga menegur RT/RW yang harus aktif dan kompak dengan kelurahan untuk membantu program pemerintah. “Kita adalah satu kesatuan dan harus bersinergi. Terima kasih kepada TNI dan Polri yang ikut dalam kegiatan pagi ini, semoga masyarakat Kota Probolinggo bisa sadar akan kebersihan lingkungannya,” imbuh wali kota. (famydecta/humas)

The environment sector has been a serious concern for Probolinggo municipal administration. To provide education to the people, Probolinggo Mayor Hadi Zainal Abidin along with Vice Mayor Mochammad Soufis Subri had a community service on Saturday (7/9) along the river on Jalan KH Fadhol – Jalan Brantas, Kademangan Sub-District.

It was led by Kademangan Sub-District Head, Pujo Agung Satrio and participated in by Head of Public Service (PUPR) Office Amin Fredy, Danramil Captain Eko Saputro, members of the Indonesian Army Forces (TNI), Indonesian Police Unit (Polri), head of urban villages, RW and RT heads, and the people of Kademangan Sub-District.

The river was under the auspices of the Province of East Java. However, normalization and cleaning are also the responsibility of the Probolinggo municipal administration and the local community. Before the community service was conducted, the PUPR Service had normalized the use of excavators for several days.

Pujo emphasized that the voluntary work carried out around the Kademangan Sub-District area would be shifted to river cleaning. “Besides cleaning and painting, we hope this activity can change people’s behavior. A lot of garbage should not be disposed of here, such as diapers, sanitary pads and so on,” said the former Head of Assets division at BPPKAD.

The river, which is about 1 kilometer long, is targeted to finish one third, then shift to the south side. When looking south at the river using a rubber boat, Vice Mayor Subri, together with the Sub-district Head of Pujo and Danramil Eko, found that there was a lot of garbage in the river. Besides, there is a sewage waste that goes directly to the river.

“Next, we will think about how to handle it appropriately. Being conducted with the existing program, so that there are no more residents who defecate directly into the river. Maybe with a communal septic tank or other alternatives,” said Vice Mayor, after a closer look at the river’s condition.

Meanwhile, Mayor Habib Hadi expects the community to have awareness of protecting their environment. The government has given an example and they should also be aware of environmental conditions.

“I have signed and reactivated the regulation stating about sanctions for those who dispose of the waste carelessly. It’s for anyone. Please all help to disseminate to other communities. This movement can educate the community and become an example for other residents,” explained Habib Hadi.

He also has warned the RT / RW, which must be active and compact with the urban village offices to help government programs. “We are one entity and must work together. Thank you to the TNI and police unit, who took part in this activity, hopefully, the people of Probolinggo City can be aware of the cleanliness of their environment,” added the mayor.
