Introduction
Water and Fresh water Important for every aspect of life Needed in large amount The quality of drinking water is used as an indicator on the quality of the country (health) The consumption of clean water is increase as the number of population is increased Contamination of water is related to the incident of diseases
2

Water Cycle
Water Cycle (hydrologic cycle) The process of water movement from atmosphere and return back to atmosphere through condensation, precipitation, evaporation, and transpiration continuously

3

Global Water Cycle
 Despite drought and its famine …  Water’s global cycle is little altered by us  Solar evaporation → humid atmosphere  Cresting waves → microscopic salt crystals  Salt crystals seed condensation  Rainfall snares soluble gases, feeds Life, erodes mountains, and returns to the sea

4

Hydrologic Cycle
 The hydrologic cycle, quantities of water in trillions of liters per day

5

Water Movement  Types of water movement 1) Evaporation and transpiration is the water movement in the upper surface of the earth through evaporation process and return back in the form of rain. canal and ended in the sea 6 . or ice 2) Infiltration is the water movement in the earth through ground tunnel and pore running to a lower level vertically or horizontally toward water table 3) Water Runoff is the water movement in the upper surface of the earth through river. snow.

Water For Us  Indonesia is a rich country (???) 13 .

Water For Us  What do you think if we sell our water (???) 14 .

Water in Human life  Water is used not only for consumption. but also for other purposes 15 .

Water in Human life  What would will be if the water are polluter? Or if the water overloaded? 16 .

Water Properties  Hydrology is sciences study about water. including:  Limnology is studying the characteristics of fresh water. and chemical and physical properties of water  Oceanography is studying the properties of sea water 17 . the characteristics of organism live in water.

Water Properties  Properties of water is unique that allows every creatures could live with water  Universal solvent  Transparent to visible  Higher heat of evaporation 18 .

22 .Water Quality Analysis  Water quality standards include parameters in the three broad categories of biological. chemical and physical water quality There are different standards written within these categories. because water may be designated for different uses.

alga. by conducting in situ with chemical reaction Biological analysis  the level of pollution by using organism (bacteria. insect. plant) 23 .Water Quality Analysis  Water quality analysis is used for the composition of water that could be done chemically and biologically Chemical analysis  the level of pollution.

Chemical Analysis  Water quality analysis by chemical analysis could be done by using Test Kits and Colorometers 24 .

K)  Oligotropic  low because the nutrition contents are low  TDS is an indicator for water pollution (ppm)  Domestic waste (industry. colloids. and at dry season become yellow  TDS is related to the productivity of the water  Eutropic  high because the nutrition contents are high (N.

Total Dissolve solid (TDS)  Turbidity testing method is an indication for total solid in water  Turbidity measures the actual quality and quantity of suspended solids in the water 27 .

Conductivity Measurement Conductivity in pure water Conductivity of water plus salt Conductivity solid NaCl Conductivity molten NaCl 29 .

Conductivity Measurement  Conductivity of the solution is related to the total disolve solid in the water  The concentration of solid equals to the resistance of the solution 30 .

Dissolve Oxygen  Gasses dissolve in water are crucial to the welfare of living species in water  Aquatic organism (fish) require O2 and give off CO2  Aquatic plant require CO2 to perform photosynthesis and releases O2  DO is an indicator for quality of water to support living organism  DO is also used to indicate water pollution (the presence of algae or SO2 in water)  Organism survive if DO > 5 ppm  DO is analyzed quantitatively by using of 1) Titrimetric (Winkler Method  Oxygen kit) 2) Electroanalytic Method (Oxygen meter) 31 .

Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD)  Most commonly used parameter to define the strength of a polluted water  Used to determine the relative oxygen requirements for polluted waters  What threat dose BOD present to a receiving water body?  Reduction in dissolved oxygen (DO)  < 30 mg/L is the standard  In the laboratory  Quantity of oxygen utilized by a mixed population of microorganisms in the aerobic oxidation (of the organic matter (OM) in a sample of wastewater) at a temperature of 20°C ± 1 °C in an air incubator or water bath 35 .

Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD)  BOD is another important water-quality parameter  Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) refers to the amount of oxygen utilized when the organic matter in a given volume of water is degraded biologically  Conducted for a period of 5 days  Dark condition (No photosynthesis)  Decreases in O2 is due to the microorganism activity that consume O2 and degrade organic or nutrient in water  Clean water (normal water)  low M’O  Decrease in O2 level small  BOD low = 0.7  Polluted water  high M’O  Decrease in O2 level large  BOD high > 200 (200 mg O2 consumed by organism in 5 days) 36 .

Cells DO + bacteria DO + protozoans • If [OM] increases. releasing CO2 & producing a substantial increase in bacterial pop. therefore BOD test indirectly measures [OM] 37 . OM → CO2 + bact. oxygen consumption: • Increases.BOD reaction Mechanism • Metabolism of OM & uptake of DO by bacteria. cells → CO2 + prot.

prep time)  D2 = final DO (after 5 day incubation)  D1 and D2 both have units of mg/L  P = decimal fraction of wastewater  = mL of wastewater/mL of BOD bottle 38 .BOD Calculation  BOD (mg/L) = (D1-D2)/P  D1 = initial DO (after 15min.

Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)  COD is another important water-quality parameter  Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) refers to the amount of oxygen utilized to oxidizes chemical matter in water  To oxidize organic substances by using chemical oxidizer such as K2Cr2O7 CxHyOz + Cr2O72.+ H+ CO2 + H2O + Cr3+  COD measurement is conducted by titration as the amount of dichromate needed is equals to the O2 to oxidize organic matter 39 .

6.Alkalinity and pH • Alkalinity and pH is another important of waterquality parameter • Alkalinity is the defined as the ability of a natural water to neutralize acid • The composition of the natural water contains of chemical substances results in total alkalinity  The pH of fresh water (unpolluted) is pH 6.0.1 (All water below pH 5.0 is categorized as polluted  pH was measured using pH-meter  Alkalinity is measured by titration (Titrimetic method) 40 . and sea water is pH 8. where rain water is pH 5.0-8.

Alkalinity Measurement  Both laboratory and field instruments readily available 41 .

equivalence end point determined is difficult to determine (only by extrapolation) 42 . or potentiometric (most accurate) • For low alkalinity samples (<20). may interfere but cannot be removed since they contribute to alkalinity of the water • Analysis by HCl (or H2SO4) titration (end-pt.Alkalinity Measurement • Oily matter. ppcts.

Chemicals in Water  Chemical is easily dissolve in water (natural such as minerals. or ion (cations and anion). and from organism activity)  Chemicals as pollutant  Chemical as nutrient  Chemicals commonly found in water could be as gases (O2. Colloids etc that mostly invisible  The presence of chemicals in water effected the quality of water (drinking water)  Regulation by Government to protect water and to control the pollutant 44 .
