Karang Mumus is a river that is widely used by the community for various activities to meet the needs of life such as bathing, washing and as a source of drinking water. This causes water quality to decline and results in health impacts on river users. The purpose of this study was to analyze the water quality status of the Karang Mumus River Segment of the S.
