Considering when the water needs to surge, an alternative is required to obtain clean water-one of them by utilizing the presence of shallow groundwater. However, not all shallow groundwater has good quality to consume. Thus, the study aims to describe the groundwater quality spatial pattern and describe the link between the spatial pattern of groundwater quality with lithology, land use, and groundwater in DAS Cijurey, Majalengka regency. There are two types of parameters used, namely physical and chemical. The shallow groundwater Quality measurement was carried out in November 2019. The results showed the territorial distribution of groundwater quality and the connection between groundwater and the three influence factors at DAS Cijurey. The number of samples used is 41 points, groundwater quality sampling with a purposive random sampling method. As the parameters measured will be compared to 3 quality standards, namely, Ministerial Regulation No. 492/Menkes/PER/IV/2010, Government regulation of the Republic of Indonesia No. 82 2001, and Regulation of the Minister of Health RI No. 01/birhukmas/1975. After that, a decent water quality result (6 samples) is not feasible (35 samples) for consumption. The dominating factors of land use, i.e., settlement, for the dominating lithology are the unraveling volcanic rock and the depth of the water in its depths of 0-5 meters.
