Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

The development of the City of Dumai became a city of oil trading, and refining increased the municipal government's financial income. But along with these developments, pollution due to mining and oil refining activities has also increased and endangered the health of Dumai City residents. This study analyzes pollution's causes, especially pollution due to waste processing and refining oil in the City of Dumai and the Government of the City of Dumai to overcome the various pollution that occurs. The data used to write the research results were obtained through literature studies in some university libraries in Pekanbaru, interviews with several residents who directly experienced the impact of pollution that occurred in Dumai City, as well as printed and online newspapers. The results of this study indicate that the level of air, water, soil, and noise pollution in Dumai City endangers the health of the population and has the potential to damage the environment and ecosystems, especially in the waters of Dumai. This research also shows that the Dumai City government through the Office of the Environment has not worked optimally in overcoming pollution in four different mediums so that the level of pollution from day to day is getting worse.
