Abstract
The Cibanten river is very important for life aquatic organisms and human survival. The purpose of this study was to determine the water quality status and microbiological analyses involved Total Coliform (TC) and estimation of Fecal Coliform (FC) of Cibanten river. Water sampling was conducted along by Cibanten river from up to downstream at six (6) stations for a period from March-October 2017. The number of total and faecal coliform was analysed using the Most Probable Number (MPN) method and STORET method for determining water quality status. Total coliform counts varied from 2400-9200 MPN/100 ml. The maximum total coliform is found in upstream of station 1 (Pabuaran village) 9200 MPN/100 ml was recorded in March-May 2017. Fecal coliform counts varied from 1300-6400 MPN/100 ml. The maximum fecal coliform is found in station 1 (Pabuaran village) 6300 MPN/100 ml was recorded in August-October 2017. Based on STORET method showed that water quality of Cibanten river in moderately polluted. In some situations, even stricter requirements and policies are necessary to achieve sustainability of water quality and ecology in Banten Province.
