Abstract—Cisadane watersheds is a very valuable strategic
area for the people in Tangerang District, Banten, Indonesia.
But that strategic value has brings an impact in the form of
water pollution, that comes from its popullation and economic
activities. This water pollution load is necessary to know its
source, and also how much, so that public, private and local
governments can jointly take action to restore the water quality
of the Cidasane River. The purpose of this study is to determine
the pollution load in the Cidasane watersheds. The study will
taking sample of Cisadane River water as an inputs in the isoyet
map pollution dispersion modeling. And calculating the load in
the river using QUAL2Kw modelling. The results of the
modeling are then analyzed to obtain the amount of Cisadane
River pollutant load. The pollution load in this study will be
focused on BOD, NO3, and Total P, and Salinity. This research
has shown the inter-regional pollution spread on the Cisadane
river, which used This study will provide a measurable data of
the type and scale of the pollution load in Cisadane, as an input
for Cisadane River water quality restoration policy making by
the Government of Tangerang.
Index Terms—Cisadane river, Isoyet map, pollution load, QUAL2Kw model, sustainable watersheds.
