ABOUT JASA TIRTA I PUBLIC CORPORATION
Jasa Tirta I Public Corporation (PJT I) is a State-Owned Enterprise in Indonesia which is focused on Water Resources Management. PJT I currently manages and utilizes water resources in five river basins in Indonesia under the jurisdiction of the Public Works and Housing Ministry includes the Brantas, Bengawan Solo, Jratun Seluna, Serayu Bogowonto and Toba Asahan river basins. Other tasks are utilization of water resources such as water for irrigation to support food security, industrial and household, as well as the development of Drinking Water Supply Systems in areas not served by Local Water Supply Utility, including water service for low economic communities. PJT I operations are strongly influenced by hydroclimatic conditions, water availability, river basin conditions, and water quality. For that purpose, PJT I implemented Smart Water Management System (SWMS) which monitors hydrometeorology, hydrometry, water quality, dam safety, and observation of reservoir based on GSM and internet networks automatically and in real-time. One of the significant features is prediction on rainfall and discharge at each monitoring station and it can incorporate complex operational rules into the model such as reservoir rules, environmental releases and water allocation. With this implementation, PJT I can become more effective and efficient in managing water resources in the basin.
