Abstrak: South Kalimantan is an area that has many streams one Martapura river. Most communities around the river banks utilize for domestic purposes such as drinking, cooking, washing, and bathing. However, the current water quality have been unsuitable, even dangerous classified. Effective method used to reduce pollutant elements of physical, chemical, biological and one of them is by using activated carbon filtration. Raw materials can be developed as activated carbon is an oil palm shell waste from palm oil processing industry / crude palm oil (CPO). The purpose of this study was to determine the water quality of physical, chemical and biological water treatment process using activated carbon from palm shell.Observations were made of the physical parameters (turbidity, color and TSS), chemical (iron (Fe), manganese (Mn)), biology (coliform). The best treatment at the water treatment process Martapura river with the design of water treatment using activated carbon from palm shell is using an activated carbon filter. This treatment can produce clean water in accordance with the standards PERMENKES No. 416 of 1990 and PP water quality standards 82 of 2001 results obtained 1st class is the physics of water quality color TCU 0.0020, 0.11 NTU turbidity and TSS 0.428 mg / l, the chemical water quality of iron (Fe) 0.0249 mg / l and manganese (Mn) of 0.0063 mg / l, and biological water quality of the coliform bacteria numbered 7/100 ml.
