Morotai`s residents desperately need clean water

I live in Balikpapan in an influential suburb. We have had a filthy water supply for many years and protests to the provider, Sinar Mas, have met with indifference. Although the contracts we (hundreds) signed when we all bought houses state that PDAM water will be supplied we have never been connected. Sinar Mas drilled a well and pumped the filthy water into holding tanks to provide a "water" supply to these hundreds of homes. The water is so dirty most of the time that it resembles flood water from the rivers after heavy rains. Nearly every home has had to install filters to get clean water from the filth supplied. These filters have to be backwashed sometimes twice a day to get rid of the mud. Although I empathise with the people of Moratai I just can't get rid of this angry feeling that in this day and age, one of the esentials in life, clean water, is not available and that we have all been ripped of by Sinar Mas. No point complaining to the Health Dept who don't seem to be interested in doing any of their duties.
