Jakarta, as a prominent urban area, has limitations of freshwater sources. Krukut River is one of the rivers used as a source of clean water in Jakarta. However, only the upper horizons of the river are utilized. This research aimed aims to understand the environmental and social aspects that have the potential to maintain Krukut River water quality. DKI Jakarta Environmental Agency in 2018 asserted that the BOD parameter value of Krukut River has increased along from upstream (4,16 mg/l) to downstream (11,57 mg/l) and exceeded the standards of raw water quality set by the government. By conducting a literature review, this research outlined the essential points of the environmental and social aspects that may be the basis of concept regarding the water quality improvement of the Krukut River. This research also calculate the BOD loads from population in Krukut River catchment area as one of the factors potentially contribute to river pollution The information obtained from this research was expected to be the cornerstone in analyzing river pollution control.
