Abstract

This research was conducted to identify river quality at Sungai Siring, Melaka. The parameters used to study this water quality are Total Suspended Solid (TSS), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Dissolved Oxygen (DO), pH Value (pH) and Salinity experiments. The study location is divided into three locations: upstream, downstream, and middle of the river. 27-litre sample for this laboratory water quality test. This test was performed at Melaka Biotechnology Laboratory, Ayer Keroh, Melaka. Overall, the river water quality at each sampling station was unclean (class IV based on the Water Quality Index). In conclusion, the water quality of Sungai Siring is not clean. It can be used for crops but more for irrigation, dust suppression, food waste removal from restaurants, and sewage disposal. Irrigation is often studied in conjunction with drainage, which is the transfer of surface or subsurface water from a particular area naturally. Thus, river water in class IV like Sungai siring may just use for irrigation.
