Abstract:

This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of activities in campus Universitas Padjadjaran (UNPAD) on the water quality as a result of the entery and discharge of pollution materials from laboratories, food courts, agriculture and domestic waste in campus UNPAD to Check dam UNPAD, Ciparanje and Cikuda River. Very limited information is available on the phytoplankton status and the effect of water pollution on the phytoplankton population of this area. Thus the present study was undertaken to study the seasonal diversity and the physico-chemical properties of water for five sampling localities were selected for the present study depending upon the anthropogenic activities around the Campus UNPAD, water samples at selected points were analysed for pH ranged from 5.45- 8.97, DO 4.3-8.9 mg L-1, BOD 0.27 - 15.78 mg L-1, PO4 0.080-0.611 mg L-1, NH3-N 0.0001-1.150 mg L-1, NO3-N 0.333-2.820 mg L-1. Spatial and temporal distribution of phytoplankton was studied in detail, the results showed that, the total number of phytoplankton classes were 8 in five different stations studied which comprises 42 different genera, the genus are represented by 10 genus Chlorophyceae, 14 genus Bacillariophyceae, 10 genus Cyanophyceae, 4 genus Euglenophyceae, 1 genus Coscinodiscophyceae, 1 genus Florideophyceae, 1 genus Xanthophyceae and 1 genus Zygnematophyceae. Among phytoplankton various species of Bacillariophyceae were dominant throughout the study period, with changes in temperature and phytoplankton composition density of phytoplankton exhibited during the dry season.
