This Report is part of the UNEPAUSAID response for a request from the Government of Indonesia Ministry of Environment to fully evaluate alternatives for mitigation of the mud volcano disaster known as Lusi
abbreviation from Lumpur Sidoarjo in East Java Indonesia. The eruption of
the Lusi mud volcano can be traced to May 29th 2006. By May 2008 there
are thirteen recorded fatalities directly related to the disaster and over 75000 persons impacted from 17002 households. The total number of dwellings lost or damaged by the mud flow is about 14000. The latest loss estimate of Sidoarjo Regency assets is around 26 trillion Rupiah Tuti 2008. The current management option taken by BPLS Sidoarjo Mud Flow Mitigation Agency is to contain the mud material around the extrusion zone with a primary objective to protect main infrastructure and urban assets. This
strategy seems reasonable if the mud flow ceased or a technical solution to
stem the flow is found. The current approach also reflects complex issues
surrounding responsibility for the mudflow and relief efforts land tenure and technical feasibility of alternative proposals. In October 2006 as the mud flow threatened to overwhelm containment dams and costs mounted some limited pumping of mud to the Porong River Canal Presidential Directive October 2006 was initiated. As the Porong River is the main flood water conduit for Sidoarjo Regency and City of Surabaya this option carries with it increased risk of flooding in the Brantas River floodplain.
