                Mengantisipasi dampak musim hujan yang mengguyur Kota Probolinggo beberapa bulan terakhir, Walikota Rukmini Buchori menggalakkan kerja bakti di sejumlah lokasi rawan banjir. Kerja bakti yang melibatkan sejumlah elemen itu dinilai efektif mengatasi genangan air di kota mangga. Walikota pun memimpin secara langsung kegiatan sosial tersebut.

                Anticipating the impact of the rainy season in Probolinggo city in some recent months, Mayor Rukmini Buchori held community services in a number of flood-prone locations. Community service which involves a number of elements is considered effective to overcome the flood in “mango town”, Probolinggo usually called. The Mayor also lead this social activity directly.

                Pasca banjir di kawasan Jalan Soekarno Hatta, Walikota Rukmini mengagas kerja bakti di sungai wangkal yang diduga menjadi salah satu sumber banjir itu terjadi. Apel kerja bakti digelar di halaman kantor Dinas Pertanian, Jumat (6/2) sekira pukul 05.30. “Beberapa genangan air di Jalan Soekarno Hatta ini karena jembatan terlalu pendek dan terjadi sendimen. Masyarakat dihimbau agar tidak lagi membuang sampah di sungai,” seru walikota.

                Post-flood in the area of Soekarno Hatta street, Mayor Rukmini created the community service in the Wangkal river which is suspected as one of the source of the flooding. The ceremony of this activity held in the office of the Agricultural Agency, on Friday (6/2) at about 05.30 am. “Some puddles in Soekarno Hatta street is because the bridge is too short and there are sediment. People are encouraged to no longer dispose of waste in the river, “said the mayor. 

Apel pagi itu diikuti sejumlah kepala satker, perwakilan Polres Probolinggo Kota, Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI), Perhutani, Yon Zipur, Kodim 0820, Dinas Pertanian, Badan Lingkungan Hidup (BLH), Dinas Pemuda Olahraga Budaya dan Pariwisata (Dispobpar), Kantor Pemberdayaan Masyarakat (Pemas), Badan Penanggulangan Bencana Daerah (BPBD), Kecamatan Kanigaran, Kelurahan Kanigaran dan Tisnonegaran.

Sekitar 300 meter sepanjang sungai wangkal dibersihkan. Walikota Rukmini didampingi Asisten Ekonomi dan Pembangunan Budi Krisyanto, Kepala BLH Tutang Heru Aribowo dan Kepala Dinas Pertanian Yudha Sunantya ikut turun membersihkan sungai. “Ayo angkat..,” cetus Walikota Rukmini menyemangati mereka yang mengangkat sampah dari sungai dangkal tersebut.

                The ceremony was followed by a number of heads of work units, representatives of Probolinggo City Police, the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI), Perhutani, Yon Zipur, Kodim 0820, the Agency of Agriculture, the Environment Agency (BLH), the Agency of Youth, Sport, Culture and Tourism (Dispobpar), the Agency of Empowerment Society (Pemas), Regional Disaster Management Agency (BPBD), Kanigaran District , Kanigaran and Tisnonegaran Village. They cleaned along the Wangkal river, at about 300 meters. Rukmini, accompanied by Assistant Mayor for Economic and Development Budi Krisyanto, Head of BLH Tutang Heru Aribowo and Head of Agriculture Yudha Sunantya, come down to clean the river. “Come lift up..,” said Mayor Rukmini encourage those who lift up the garbage from the shallow river.   

                Asisten Ekonomi dan Pembangunan Budi Kris membenarkan genangan air ketika hujan di Jalan Soekarno Hatta disebabkan oleh sungai wangkal. “Banyaknya sampah di sungai, ditambah luapan air hujan alhasil Jalan Soekarno Hatta jadi tergenang. Selain itu, jembatan ini kurang tinggi. Kami sudah mengirimkan surat ke pusat, karena Jalan Soekarno Hatta adalah jalan nasional, kami berhadap ada perbaikan untuk ditinggikan,” tuturnya.

                Economic and Development Assistant Budi Kris confirmed that the cause of the puddles in Soekarno Hatta street when the rain comes is Wangkal river. “The amount of garbage in the river, plus the overflow of rainwater, it makes the Soekarno Hatta street flooded. In addition, the bridge is not high enough. We have sent a letter to the national government, because Soekarno Hatta street is a national road, we hoped that there are any improvements to elevate the bridge, “he said.

                Masih menurut mantan Kepala BLH ini, sosialisasi larangan membuang sampah di sungai sangat diperlukan bagi masyarakat. Curah hujan yang tinggi ditambah sendimen sungai yang mempersempit aliran air membuat air mudah meluap. Ia pun menegaskan, solusi mengatasi genangan air bukan dengan kerja bakti dan peninggian jembatan saja tetapi juga normalisasi sungai. “Kabel milik perusahaan telekomunikasi itu juga sangat menganggu jembatan, kami akan tindaklanjuti itu. Soal normalisasi sungai, Dinas Pekerjaan Umum sudah menyiapkannya,” kata Budi Kris.

                Still according to this former head of BLH, the socialization of prohibition on waste disposing in the river is very necessary for the society. High rainfall plus the sediment which narrowed the river makes the water easily overflow. He also emphasized that a solution to overcome flooding is not only making the community service and elevating the bridge, but also normalizing of the river. “The wire-owned telecommunications company  also very disturb the bridge, we will follow up it. About the normalization of the river, the Agency of Public Works is doing that, “said Budi Kris.             

                Setelah bersih-bersih sungai wangkal, Jumat (13/2) Walikota Rukmini bergeser membersihkan kali banger. Apel kerja bakti ini dilaksanakan di Rusunawa Bestari, Mayangan. Pasukan yang dilibatkan antara lain BLH, Dinas PU, BPBD, Kwarcab Pramuka, Bagian Umum, Kecamatan Mayangan dan kelurahan se-Kecamatan Mayangan dan warga setempat.

                After clean-up Wangkal river, on Friday (13/2), Mayor Rukmini began to clean Banger river. The ceremony of it was carried out in Rusunawa Bestari, Mayangan. The people involved in are BLH, Agency of Public Works, BPBD, the Scouts, General Department, Mayangan District and villages throughout the Mayangan District and the local residents.

                Kerja bakti ini diharapkan mampu menggugah kesadaran masyarakat akan pentingnya menjaga kebersihan dan persiapan menjelang penilaian Adipura tahap kedua. “Bukan sekedar kebersihan sungai yang dijaga, upaya lain untuk menjaga kebersihan juga harus dilakukan. Seperti memilah sampah, mengoptimalkan 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) di masing-masing sumber sampah termasuk SKPD (satuan kerja perangkat daerah),” terang Walikota Rukmini.

                This community service is expected to encourage the public awareness of the importance of maintaining cleanliness and it is also for the preparation for the second phase Adipura assessment. “Not only to keep the river cleanliness, but another efforts to maintain hygiene must also be done. It is like sorting garbage, optimizing 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) at each source of waste including in the SKPD area(work unit area), “said Mayor Rukmini.

               

                Walikota perempuan pertama di Kota Probolinggo ini memahami jika kesadaran menjaga kebersihkan tidak akan terwujud tanpa dukungan stakeholder. Ia pun berharap, komitmen menjaga kebersihan terus ditingkatkan dan menjalin sinergitas antara pemkot bersama masyarakat. (fa)
