The initial part of the Saluran Tarum Barat is surrounded by agricultural activities, the central part by industrial activities, and the final part by infrastructure development activities. Those various activities and environmental conditions may have different effects on the water quality of the Saluran Tarum Barat. The purpose of this research is to ascertainthe water quality of the Saluran Tarum Barat based on physical, chemical, and biological parameters determined through the National Sanitation Foundation-Water Quality Index (NSF-WQI) method.
