Transforming River into Clean and Green Environment
Changes in river conditions in Denpasar are obviously indispensable from the role of local residents who care about rivers. They come up with environmental initiatives to clean up their respective riverbank areas.
Dismayed by the filthy conditions of the rivers and irrigation canals, residents in Denpasar have launched a river cleanup movement. The environment around the tukad (riverbanks) has now improved to become more comfortable to live in, with the waterways now almost free from litter.
Environmental themed murals adorn the Supiori roadside at Dauh Puri Kauh village in Denpasar, Bali. They carry messages, such as, “Take care of nature, and nature will take care of us”, “Take care of plants and animals” and “Let's do the 3R [reuse, reduce, recycle]”. Those murals have been installed in the vicinity of an aesthetically rejuvenated park at the Tukad Baru, or more commonly as Tukad Beling, irrigation canal.
