Abstract

All this time, the design of Bantargebang TPST follows the rules of landfilling with sanitary landfills which are equipped with leachate management and gas control, but in reality the implementation is open dumping (stacking without processing). Pollutants in leachates such as hardness, manganese, nitrites, iron and heavy metals will flow away from the landfill that causes pollution in surface and ground water, this way is very dangerous and harmful because it will cause permanent pollution to ground water. The resulting impact of poor water quality is the occurrence of various types of diseases and direct impact on humans. The danger of water pollution caused for human health is divided into two, namely direct and indirect hazards. This research uses quantitative method. Quantitative method is used to calculate groundwater quality analysis using laboratory instrumentation. The research results concludes that ground water quality, which is by chemical parameters all meet the quality standards, while by microbiological parameters all have not met the quality standard. This research can contribute to providing advice on building sanitation and governance of groundwater preservation at the Bantargebang TPST.
