Water is an important natural resource in supporting the lives of all living things. The increasing population in Majalengka District adding a large amount of water usage. The extraction of groundwater that has been carried out over time has also increased, thus, a study is needed to reveal groundwater recharge zone so that we can predict the groundwater reserves in a certain area. Therefore, a study entitled Potential Groundwater Recharge Zone in CAT Majalengka needs to be conducted because CAT is a location where rainwater falls and can also be used as data to estimate the groundwater reserves in a certain area. The method used in this study was SMCE (Spatial Multi-Criteria Evaluation) by using a quality point system on each variable used. The variables used in this study were lithology, rainfall, slope, altitude, land use, soil texture, and flow density. The results of this study showed that the potential groundwater recharge zones in CAT Majalengka were dominated by high and very high classifications. High and very high classification potential dominated at an altitude of 500-1000 meter above sea level.
