Abstract

Providing clean water to the community has a very important role in
improving the environment or public health, which has a role in reducing the number of
people with the disease, especially those related to water, and its role in improving the
standard or level / quality of life. initial survey conducted on February 20, 2016 in RW.
03 Village Rawa Makmur Permai Bengkulu City after measurements were obtained Iron
(Fe) 0.9 mg / L; Manganese (Mn) of 0.87 mg / L. From the measurement results in the
initial survey is known that water wells RW.03 village residents Rawa Makmur Permai
Bengkulu city still exceeds the threshold required by Permenkes RI 416 / Menkes / per /
IX / 1990. The purpose of this study was to determine the reduced levels of Fe and Mn
before and after treatment by using a variation of coal thickness of 20 cm, 30 cm and 50
cm as well as to the most effective menegetahui thickness variation to reduce levels of Fe
and Mn. This research uses experimental methods pure (True Experimental) experimental
design with Pre-Post test, the research conducted before and after treatment. Then look
for the difference between the measurement of both, and the difference is considered as a
result of treatment. Results of the study is the reduction of Fe content using coal
decreased by 42% and decreased levels of Mn using coal decreased by 35%. The result
showed that the thicker the more effective adsorbent decline.
