Trucks bring earth to reinforce the dam which is preventing the mud from re-flowing over the wreckage of Kedung Bendoh village. Since May 2006, more than 10,000 people in the Porong subdistrict of Sidoarjo have been displaced by hot mud flowing from a natural gas well that was being drilled by the oil company Lapindo Brantas. The torrent of mud - up to 125,000 cubic metres per day - continued to flow three years later.
