Mandalika Water Supply - New Ground Water Tanks

The Mandalika is on its way to becoming a prime tourist destination in Indonesia, thanks in part, to the ongoing infrastructure development in the area. One such development is the construction of the Ground Water Tank (GWT), managed by PT Indonesia Tourism Development (Persero)/Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), which is expected to be completed by June 2023.

The GWT development is divided into two locations, namely west and east, with the progress in the east reaching 45 percent. This area consists of three silos or water storage tanks, each with a diameter of 30m and a height of 11m with a capacity of up to 8,000 m3 for each silo. Meanwhile, the construction of the East GWT has reached 35 percent, which consists of three silos with a diameter of 30m, a height of 10m, and a silo capacity of 7,000 m3 each. This development is part of the MUTIP I work package, which is fully funded by the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).


The GWT construction is being carried out by the Joint Operation (JO) of PP-WIKA-Bunga Raya Lestari (BRL), and according to Molin Duwanno, the General Manager of The Mandalika, the construction is going according to plan in terms of physical specifications, building safety, and the timeline for completion.


"The construction of the GWT completes the area's supporting facilities for clean water storage, which will be distributed to tenants and used in the Mandalika area. With the construction of the GWT, we can increase the sustainability of clean water distribution in The Mandalika area," said Molin.

Aside from its positive impact on clean water distribution, the GWT construction also has a positive impact on the local infrastructure. It provides job opportunities for the locals, which can help boost the local economy. Furthermore, the infrastructure development in The Mandalika can attract more tourists, which can lead to more business opportunities for the locals.


Moreover, the construction of the GWT is sustainable because it provides a reliable source of clean water that can be used for years to come. The GWT's large capacity ensures that the area has enough clean water to sustain its growing population and tourism industry. Additionally, the use of local materials and labor in the construction of the GWT reduces the carbon footprint associated with transportation and contributes to the local economy.


In conclusion, the ongoing GWT construction in The Mandalika is a positive development that contributes to the area's sustainable infrastructure and economy. It provides a reliable source of clean water for the growing population and tourism industry, creates job opportunities for the locals, and attracts more tourists to the area.
