Abstract

Yogyakarta Municipality faces the problem of limited land to build housing, thus encouraging development of apartments. Many experts believe that construction of apartments in urban areas has positive impacts on the environment, like preservation of agricultural land, green spaces, and riverbanks. This research is intended to find out whether the construction of apartments really has positive impacts on the environment? Or is there a negative impact that is not anticipated before? The results show that apartments built in densely populated areas have a negative impact in the form of drying up wells belonging to local residents, due to the utilization of deep wells to meet the water needs of apartment residents. So, the apartment can combine deep pumping wells with other technologies, namely: processing recycled wastewater into clean water, making rainwater collection systems to be absorbed into the ground, and increasing trees and green open spaces for capturing water.
