Raw water with high turbidity requires pretreatment on its ultrafiltration unit to prevent fouling. Based on that, it is necessary to evaluate the ultrafiltration unit's quality, quantity, and operation in Siwalanpanji's WTP. The evaluation method compares the design criteria, technical specification, and ultrafiltration with the conventional to see the existing condition. The results of ultrafiltration turbidity and organic substance efficiency removal are about 53% and 18%, it's not more good than conventional unit efficiency removal, which has 89% for turbidities removal and 37% for organic substance removal. Moreover, the quality of the production water fulfils the standards of Indonesia Health Minister No. 492 of 2010, except for the value of organic substances, which is in this analysis it around 13.69 mg/L meanwhile, in standard, it must not be more than 10 mg/L. Evaluation of the operating performance of each treatment unit related to the membrane unit at the WTP in Siwalanpanji has fulfilled the criteria design. However, using an ultrafiltration unit results in treated water quality is equivalent to a conventional treatment unit. So from this evaluation, it is found that there is a need for recommendations pretreatment, which is better for raw water to treat before ultrafiltration.
