Community Empowerment of Underground River Water Management in Pucung

Drs. Priyono, M. Si. dkk

Pucung village located in the Mount Sewu karst region which is the area near the top with a height of 550 m dpal. The village has a population of 544 families with 4,190 people which more than half (2,350 people) have difficulty getting clean water for daily use. The average income of families is IDR 600,000 per month. When the dry season comes, they have to lose half of their income to buy water. Although since 2013 the lifting of underground river water from the Suruh Cave successfully meet the needs of clean water in the Pucung village, however, the distribution of water encountered some constraints, namely: first, the pumping discharge is still a little so that the availability of water for the population is still lacking; and second, the uneven distribution of water causing social problems such as jealousy between residents who already get water to residents who do not get water.

Therefore, it is necessary to empowering the communities to manage water resources of the underground river in Pucung so that water needs fulfilled in a fair and equitable. This paper was written from the results of the implementation of the community service program conducted by the Faculty of Geography UMS. Community empowerment is done in the form of training and assistance to the community Pucung in managing water resources of the underground river. Read more please download here.
