  • Nurhayati


The river water is one of the environmental components that have an important function for human life, including to supports economic development. Currently, residents in DKI Jakarta Province still use river water as a source of clean and drinking water, this is due to the limited supply of clean water provided by PDAM Jaya so that river water is an alternative source of water. The river as a body of recipient of domestic waste water becomes one of the natural resources that are vulnerable to pollution. Grogol River is one of the rivers that is used as raw water for clean water and is now polluted due to community activities. This study aims to analyze water quality and determine efforts to control water pollution in the Grogol River. The research method used is a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods. The SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat) method is used to determine water pollution control efforts. The results showed that efforts to control water pollution that can be applied in the Grogol River are: control the people who live and operate in river border areas, organize socialization and training to the community and MSME about the importance of waste management, improve supervision of MSME liquid waste disposal, government assistance in creating systems and implementing integrated WWTP for MSME activities and slums, and implementation of water pollution control programs.
