Abstract

Duren Seribu Water Treatment Plant (WTP) plays a role in fulfilling water needs due to the increase in population growth. This study aims to evaluate the performance of the WTP and the potential for capacity uprating from the aspect of conformity to water quality standards, removal efficiency, and design parameters. Data collection was carried out by observation, measurement, and sampling. The result showed that raw water quality complies with the quality standards and is influenced by seasons. Meanwhile, the quality of drinking water produced for the parameters of pH, turbidity, TDS, organic matter, iron, and total coliform has complied with the quality standards. The efficiency removal of turbidity, TDS, organic matter, and iron occurred in conventional processing units were 94.6%, 70.5%, and 90.9%, and the total coliform removal efficiency was 1.8-log (67.05%). Based on the assessment of the design criteria, there are design parameters of the unit that require technical improvement such as detention time of flocculation unit, velocity and detention time in tube settler sedimentation unit, and the capacity of Duren Seribu WTP could be increased by 10% or up to 110 liters/second.
