Water Quality Degraded in Tourism Areas: Bali

Ground water quality has severely worsened in several of Bali‘s most popular tourism areas, including Nusa Dua. Poor ground water quality and contamination has been blamed on the area’s ever-increasing production of waste and garbage. The ground water and wells in Nusa Dua, Tanjung Benoa and Legian areas are so heavily contaminated that the water is unfit for human consumption according to I Ketut Sundra, a lecturer at Indonesia’s Udayana State University’s biology department.
