The problem of environmental damages in the river area can transform the morphology and threaten the ecosystem in it with one of the causes being natural factors such as suspended sediment. Retracing the medium form is fluid, the common instrument to determine the condition of the area is a sound wave-based instrument such as a multibeam echosounder. Considering the improvement of multibeam echosounder which can acquire areas using many frequencies at one time, noted as multi-frequency multibeam echosounder, now its application can reach various fields including environmental monitoring. Factors that can be considered in its practice include time efficiency, cost, and notably the accuracy of the data result. By converting the results of the acquisition into an estimate of the concentration of suspended sediment and integrating the results from several frequencies, it will be established the applicable frequency usage. It was concluded that a multibeam echosounder with a frequency of 450 kHz was recommended in a case study to determine the concentration of suspended sediment. This is supported by a correlation value of 89.18% or a very high correlation.
