Abstract

The Park and Forest Service (Distamhut) of DKI Jakarta Province has a goal to increase the city’s green open spaces by utilizing the city‘s river banks. This research evaluated the water quality of a river segment from the Cilangkap River, Sunter River Basin, and Ciliwung-Cisadane watershed. Located adjacent to an urban and residential area, the 1.19 km river segment received wastewater from domestic, agricultural, fisheries, and small-scale factory activities. Water samples are taken from 4 sampling points along the river during August 2022. Although utilized for fisheries and agriculture, the Pollution Index (IP) for Class III shows that the Pollution Index value is in the range of 0 < Plj 5.0, thus the river is lightly polluted. This paper also reviews several of the nature-based solution as recommendation for improving river water quality. Bioretention ponds, rain gardens, or surface-flow wetlands are the several alternatives that can be applied for improving urban river.
