Water is a natural resource that has a very important function for human life and promotes the welfare of humanity itself. Water is also the important component of the environment for the survival and life of humans and other living beings.

By looking at the condition, it's suspected that there is pollution in River Lamong. Conditions of water pollution can be indicated through several parameters such as the physical parameter, chemical parameter, and biological parameter. Physical parameters that can be observed include temperature, dissolve …
