Abstract

Golden Snail (Pomacea canaliculata) is a natural resource commodity in Indonesia that has not been utilized optimally, one alternative use is as a purifier in Cisadane river water. Utilization of the Cisadane river has the potential to produce waste that can damage the waters, causing problems in reducing river water quality both physically and chemically.The purpose of this study was to compare water quality with the addition of golden snail shell powder to the clarity of the Cisadane river water. The research carried out was to add golden snail shells to Cisadane river water at concentrations of 5%, 10%, 15% and 20%. showed that the golden snail shell was able to purify Cisadane river water and the best concentration of gold snail shell that could purify Cisadane river water was a concentration of 20%.
