This is the 33rd dam built by the Government in eight years. And the Sadawarna Dam is a dam built with a budget of Rp2.65 trillion that will be able to irrigate approximately 4,280 hectares of rice fields in Indramayu, Subang regency. With an inundated area of 680 hectares, we hope it will be able to increase productivity of our rice, especially Indramayu regency, a district with the largest surplus in Indonesia.
