Growth in household activities that increase water resource needs can be incompatible and their availability can be threatened. Limited water supply makes groundwater a primary need because it is easily exploited and practical. This paper attempts to understand the behavior of shallow groundwater saving by households and to observe the influence between knowledge, attitudes, and practice with their behavior. This research was conducted in the Bukit Raya Subdistrict in Pekanbaru City with 113 respondents, analyzed using a quantitative approach (SPSS). The results showed that knowledge, attitudes, and practice had a positive influence of 32.4% on shallow groundwater saving behavior. This research concludes that knowledge is the most influencing shallow groundwater saving behavior seen from the influence of attitude and practice.
