Flooding problems for an urban area is a difficult thing to avoid. One way you can do to reduce the overflow of water flowing out of the house or yard is through the creation biopori hole.

According to him the current state of most of the water flowing into the road in the city of Denpasar came from homes or offices. Moreover, most of the yard is now concreted, so that all the water will spill into the street. This is what causes occurred overflow water causing flood.

“We made substantial biopori with size 10×10 meters in the school yard.
This helps to retain water when it rains, and if the dry season biopori holes can serve as backup water. Minimum for watering the garden so it does not have to use the water taps for watering the plants, “he said.
