Crisis Team Tries to Save Lake Batur

With Bangli’s Lake Batur facing serious environmental threats, the Bali administration has formed a special team to try to save it from further degradation.

The lake is not just a tourist attraction and an important ecosystem, it is also a key source of groundwater for the lower parts of Bali, and therefore vital for agriculture. There is of found sodium and phosphates in the lake’s water at an alarming level and the lake’s water is not considered fit for human consumption. The phosphates are believed to have come from fertilisers used on surrounding farmland, and in the fish farms which ring the lake’s shores.
