Abstract

River water pollution in the Upper Citarum Watershed is increasingly being reported, research shows that the quality of river water has decreased drastically where along the 127 km or 47.1% of the Citarum river has been heavily polluted, it is estimated that every day the Citarum River accommodates 280 tons of waste. There are 31 water quality monitoring stations in the Upper Citarum Watershed: Cisanti Springs, Situ Cisanti, Bd. Wangisagara, Majalaya, Cengkrong, Solokan Jeruk, Sapan, Peundeuy, Komp. Radio, Cisirung, Pataruman, Kamasan, Dayeuh Kolot, Jb. Cilampeni, Cukang Genteng, Sadu, Nanjung, Citarum Kp. Pariang Pojok, Kertajaya, Cb. Bungin Leuwigajah, Cimahi Cihujung, Teras Cikapundung, Sukapada, Cikapundung Asia-Africa, Cinambo, Ciwastra, Jatiroke, Cikuda, Cikijing, Cimanggung, and Sindang Pakuon. Based on data analysis obtained from BBWS Citarum, data from 2011-2019 are obtained. This research aims to determine water quality status using STORET method in the Upper Citarum Watershed as indicator of environment pollution. This research method is quantitative, using the STORET method. The results show that the water quality conditions are heavily polluted, so it is necessary to make various efforts to tackle the pollution that occurs regularly, one of the ways is revitalization.
