Peat water has a brown color, humic acid content, organic substances, iron and pH levels are very
high. To overcome the problem of peat water to be made clean water need to be processing first.
Continuous processing of peat water includes; Neutralization, aeration, coagulation – flokulation, and
filtration is a complete set of processes but is packaged in a simple form. This process is designed
according to the condition and level of education of rural communities in peat water treatment. This
study was conducted at a shelter in the village of Peunaga Cut Ujong Meurebo West Aceh. This
research aims to reduce acidity, color, turbidity, flavor, iron (Fe), Zeng (Zn), organic matter, nitrate
(NO3), and Nitrit (NO2). The research method is an experimental that is directly applied in the field.
From the laboratory results in the UPTD Health Banda Aceh has been conducted test water quality
before and after processing there are significant results. The results of experimental studies through
the simple design of continuous processing using natural materials such as gravel, sand, charcoal and
palm fiber and the chemical filling of the capor and alum obtained the results of color dissipation
achieved 93.3%, pH of 98.3%, turbidity/cloudiness reached 91.9%, organic substance (KMNO4) of
73.3%, hardness of 39.7%, iron (Fe) 94.6%, zinc (Zn) of 91.09%, Flurode 77.33%, Nitrate (NO
3) of
80.04%, and Nitrit (NO
2) 99.31%. Meanwhile, the result of peat water is no smell and feel. The
results of this trial are still under the standard quality of Permenkes RI No. 416/Menkes/PER/IX/1990
on the water quality requirements.
