RISING LAKE TAMBLIGAN FORCES OUT MORE FAMILIES


lake tambligan Singaraja, March 2011 - Buleleng authorities say the waterlevel of Lake Tamblingan near Bedugul in the highlands above Lovina is still rising. Only three families living on its shores are still able to live in their houses. Fourty other families had to move away to higher ground.

Wayan Resmini, resident of the area, said he had dismantled his lakeshore dwelling and rebuilt it on higher ground further away from the lake.

The rise in lake level — now more than three metres above normal — is blamed on forest land in the area being unable to cope with Bali’s extended La Niña rains.

Regency officials say the drowned Lake Tamblingan houses will be added to the list of houses destroyed by high seas and beach erosion on Buleleng’s coast, now numbering 300, so the regency can work out how to compensate and re-house affected families.
