Ia mengatakan masyarakat di sekitar bantaran Bendungan Cibeet, datang beramai-ramai pada pagi dan sore hari untuk memanfaatkan air sungai yang masih menggenang. Hal tersebut terpaksa dilakukan karena mereka kesulitan mendapat air bersih. Saking sulitnya mendapat air, sejumlah warga terpaksa tidak mandi dan mencuci baju kalau tidak memanfaatkan air yang sudah tercemar limbah.

‘Daripada tidak mandi dan pakaian tidak dicuci, manfaatkan air yang ada, ” kata warga lainnya, Kombih, (45).

Warga juga mengaku, selama ini belum pernah ada bantuan air bersih dari pemerintah setempat utuk kebutuhan minum sehari- hari. Alhasil, masih banyak warga yang terpaksa memanfaatkan air kotor untuk memenuhi kebutuhan sehari hari di rumah.

“Selama ini belum pernah turun bantuan air bersih dari pemerintah setempat,”tandasnya.(nand)
