“Kami bersyukur,  terima kasih teman-teman sudah membantu membersihkan Pantai Nuvasa,” katanya.

Ia menceritakan awal mula kasus tersebut yang berlangsung sejak awal tahun 2021.

“Tanggal 1 Januari badai angin, lalu tanggal 2 Januari tercium bau oli, ditambah dengan rumput laut penuh disini (di bibir pantai), lalu kami koordinasi dengan DLH (Dinas Lingkungan Hidup) dan mereka langsung memantau,” katanya.

Informasi yang didapatnya, limbah tersebut adalah jenis limbah B3 dan merupakan limbah berbahaya. Sehingga sepatutnya segera dibersihkan.

“Dengan kondisi seperti ini (Pantai Nuvasa) tutup dulu sampai kondisinya bersih,” terangnya.

Kepala Dinas Kebudayaan dan Pariwisata (Disbudpar) Kota Batam, Ardiwinata mengaku prihatin atas kejadian tumpahan limbah minyak hitam tersebut.

“Pemerintah bersama Duta CHSE dan asosiasi pariwisata melaksanakan gotong royong untuk membersihkan pantai yang terdampak dari tumpahan limbah minyak hitam,” ucapnya.

Kegiatan ini sebagai bentuk tanggung jawab dalam menjaga keindahan destinasi wisata Kota Batam. Ardi mengajak masyarakat agar terus menjaga kebersihan dan kelestarian lingkungan tempat wisata.

“Ayo bersama-sama kita jaga kebersihan, keindahan, dan kelestarian pantai kita. Pantai kita sangat indah sehingga kita semua nyaman saat berakhir pekan di pantai,” ujarnya.

Wakil Wali Kota Batam, Amsakar Achmad, bersama Wakil Ketua I Tim Penggerak PKK Kota Batam, Erlita Sari Amsakar pun ikut turun membersihkan limbah minyak hitam (sludge oil) di kawasan pantai sekitar Nongsa.

Dalam kesempatan ini, Amsakar mengapresiasi keterlibatan asosiasi pariwisata dan Duta CHSE yang melaksanakan goro sebagai upaya menjaga kebersihan lingkungan.

“Terima kasih untuk semua yang terlibat dalam kegiatan ini, termasuk asosiasi-asosiasi di sektor pariwisata,” ujar Amsakar.

Amsakar menyebut, gotong royong yang sudah disepakati sejak tiga hari lalu itu, merupakan upaya pemerintah dalam menangani ancaman bencana di saat musim cuaca ekstrem seperti sekarang ini. Untuk kasus limbah minyak hitam atau sludge oil yang kerap mencemari destinasi wisata pantai di wilayah Nongsa, Amsakar akan membentuk petugas khusus yang akan melibatkan pihak terkait mengecek kandungan yang ada dalam limbah tersebut.

“Karena ini (limbah minyak) sudah berlangsung lama, setiap musim utara datang, pasti terjadi,” ujarnya.

Ia mengaku, ke depan harus ada Standar Operasional Prosedur (SOP) dalam menangani limbah minyak hitam tersebut. Ia pun langsung menginstruksikan Dinas Lingkungan Hidup (DLH) untuk menyusun SOP tersebut.

“Para pelaku pariwisata sangat peduli dalam kebersihan destinasi wisata, alhamdulillah kita semua punya rasa memiliki terhadap Batam. Dengan kebersamaan ini, semua pekerjaan berat menjadi ringan,” katanya.
