The parameters which had concentration below the standard were TDS, turbidity, temperature, iron, fluoride, chloride, manganese, and sulfate, and biological parameters like the total coliform/E.coli. The parameters which exceeded the standard were the value of color of 60 TCU in Cihideung GWT at rainy afternoon and pH of 6.38 in wing 1 sanitary at rainy morning.
