The Faculty of Nursing of Universitas Indonesia in Depok uses groundwater as the source of clean water in a large amount: 2.115.240 liters in 2018 and 22.010.960 liters in 2019. One of the alternatives for reducing groundwater use is to utilize surface water in the surrounding area of the campus, such as Lake Agathis. For the lake water to be used as the source of clean water, it needs to be processed first using a clean water provision system (CWPS). The CWPS is designed to contain two slow sand filter units, with the media consisting of 60 cm-thick silica sand and 40 cm-thick granular activated carbon in each unit. The CWPS is also equipped with one unit of shore intake, two units of suction well, one transmission duct, one unit of disinfectant and reservoir, and two filter media cleaning units. Based on a literature review from several journals and the results from this experiment, the designed slow sand filter with the previously determined thickness can reduce iron contents by 95,07%, manganese contents by 97,09%, and fecal coliform contents by 99%. The designed CWPS can serve the needs of clean water of the faculty described before with a debit of 3,8 L/s until the year 2042.
