Abstract

Water treatment equipment which is supplied in Gresik, East Java, Indonesia by the government in the development of lake water has been overlooked. The problems are occurred in this area because the people are not ready to adopt the equipment. Measurement is required in order to successfully adopt the equipment, moreover, understanding people’s perceptions of the government’s instrument to be used. The aim of this study is developing a model of people’s perception of the equipment and the purpose is understand the factors that effect of people’s perception. It is relating to the plan of implementation of water treatment facilities in the lake water which is used by the people. Primary data from 248 lake water users were gathered randomly based on the village’s region in this research. Descriptive statistics and regression analysis were used to analyze the data of this research. The results show that knowledge of clean water, a desire for good living, confidence in the equipment's ability to work, and satisfaction with the equipment's economic value had significant consequences for people's perceptions of the equipment. Therefore, the information of contaminant risks, real conditions of lake water parameters, requirements for clean water and drinking water, community involvement in the procurement of sample equipment, socialization of sample equipment operation and socio-economic community surveys need to be disseminated.
