Pompas beton (Harga Concrete Pump) is a concrete pump that is used to drain the salt water from the Pampanga River.
The Pompans are built by a local contractor and are owned and operated by the Murah Water Corporation.
Mongabay.com reports: Pompanoos Beton pump is used by Murah to drain saltwater from the river and create a water reservoir to replenish the Pumpanito Dam, which was flooded in April 2016 by a powerful typhoon.
The water that comes out of the Pupanito Reservoir can be used to fill a tank for the Pomegranate Aquifer in Pampang and other projects in Pombanga.
The water from Pompo Beton can also be used for the irrigation system of the area, according to the Murahs management.
In February, the Murjah Water Corporation received a request from the Murajas Municipality to construct a reservoir for the water system, the company said in a statement.
According to the company, the pump was installed on December 12, 2016, in the municipality of Pompany and is the largest concrete pump in the country.
Mogulayan, who works as a contractor for Murah, said that the water in the reservoir is fed by the Pumang Dam in the town of Pombang.
He said the pump pumps water from one of three rivers in the Pamega, and the reservoir will also be connected to the dam. Ibid.
