"Information System for Maintaining River Water Quality in the Urban Area"

Keynote Abstract

Many urban rivers in the developing countries evaluated as heavily polluted river. Many efforts had been conducted by means of various activities. However, those activities are still sporadically conducted, unpublished, and not well-documented, resulting inefficiency of the resources consumption. Those un-managed activities were caused by the lack of information and data publishing of the rivers’ condition. An information system of river water quality needs to be integrated, suitable, and fulfill the stakeholders requirements, enriched with the water quality modeling.

  

For the first step, the method used was best practice analysis by visiting other location which has a well-conducted system to learn how the city monitors the river water quality. The next step was to collect data concerning the potential user or stakeholder types, usage of the information system, and the user’s needs. Based on the lesson-learnt method and data collection, several systems can be applied. However, the interaction between users and the information system might be different due to the sensitivity of data publication. Thus a specific step on filtering data prior to publication needs to be placed. Potential users of this system are government officers, researchers, academic staffs, NGO, and the community. Each user has specific characteristic in interact with the system.
