The x Water Treatment Plant (WTP) of Sindang Pasekan is the importance facilities in supplying drinking water for the Indramayu sub-district operated by PDAM Tirta Derma Ayu. The WTP capacity of 50 L/sec has been increased to 65 L/sec in 2018. The objective of this study is to evaluate the performance of the WTP. The research method includes analyzing the existing WTP condition by recounting the design parameters and assessing the unit processes, unit operations, and quality of water using the recent production capacity of 65 L/sec. Data comparison towards the production water quality is in conformity with the standard of drinking water from the regulation of PERMENKES No. 492 of 2010. Event though Several design parameters do not meet the standard on the other hand, such as detention time (Td) of the intake unit and velocity gradient (G) of certain sections in the flocculation unit. The results of the WTP evaluation can be used as a design criteria recommendation as it yielded a favorable turbidity removal by 95% on average.
