Studies about river water quality are essential since the decreasing of water quality could threaten hydrology watershed function. The objective of this study was to identify water quality in rainy and dry seasons of Cidurian watershed. Water quality data were obtained from Main River Basin Organization Territory Cidanau – Ciujung – Cidurian for 2018 and 2019. The parameters of water quality consist of total suspended solids (TSS), pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), phosphate (PO4), nitrite (NO2 – N), electrical conductivity (EC), temperature, Ca, and Mg. Water sampling location were in Jasinga (upstream), Neglasari (middle stream), Rancasumur (middle stream), and Tanara (downstream). The result showed that TSS concentration showed higher in rainy season than dry season in all sampling points with values higher than river water quality standard 50 mg/L. Therefore, need attention to adopt soil conservation practices in mixed tree crops, dry cultivation land, and crop plantation to decrease soil erosion. Downstream had values of pH, DO, COD, and BOD outside of water quality standards. Accordingly, government should issue some policies to protect from decreasing water quality. The information on river water quality in Cidurian watershed could support better watershed management for sustainable hydrology watershed function.
