SOCIALIZATION OF THE USE OF GROUNDWATER IN THE SOUTH MERUYA REGION OF WEST JAKARTA
With the growth of the city every year, it changes the composition of land use. City growth that occurs in line with the development of population, social activities and industrial activities that accompany it, resulting in increased demand for land availability that will be used to carry out various activities. The availability of land as a media for water absorption is decreasing while the use of ground water is continuously being explored to meet the needs of the community, social activities and industrial activities. Structure and texture as well as other organic elements take part in increasing the rate of soil permeability The use of ground water by the community and social activities is not greater than the use by industrial activities. At present, especially large cities with very rapid development of industrial activities are causing large groundwater usage. With the decreasing availability of infiltration land, making the process of water entering the soil less and less, if this happens continuously in the long run, it will cause a decrease in the ground water level, a decrease in land elevation, and easy sea water instruction. Therefore it is necessary to socialize to the public about the use of ground water so that the condition of groundwater is maintained.
