Abstract

Community based clean water service is very common in rural area, especially in area nearby forest. This service serves thousands of poor families and provides easy and affordable waters. This study aims at assessing the benefits of community based clean water service for upland poor family in Lampung Province. The study was carried out in Wan Abdul Rachman National Park in September-November 2016 involving 40 respondents in three hamlets of Talang Mulya Village, Kecamatan Teluk Pandan, Kabupaten Pesawaran, Lampung. The study used market based valuation method in which consumers surplus was used as indicator of the benefit. The study suggests that the monthly fee for the service was ranging from Rp 2.500 and Rp 6.551 per monh or in average was around Rp 4600. The family recieved water ranging from 500 to 2000 with average of 1485 liter per day and it was far higher than their daily need from 352 to 362 liter per day or in average 356 liter per day. The study computed that the price for this water services was merely Rp 0.13 per liter, which was far lower than Rp 2,8 per liter charged by PDAM Way Rilau. Average excess supply of water was estimated at 135 liter per day or valued at Rp 3,266.5 per day. Daily consumer surplus was Rp 3,905 or Rp 1.4 million per day. However, only 21% of that benefit was actually gained by families as 79% of water was drained to local sewer. It is concluded that this services helps poor family. However, reducing over untapped excess supply through improvement of water utilization for food crops and fishpond is needed. Keywords: clean water services, consumers’ surplus, benefits
