ABSTRACT: The study entitled Water Pollution Status of East Plawangan Segara Anakan Cilacap based on Cd heavy metal content in water and sediment. This study aims to determine Cd heavy metal content in water and sediment in East Plawangan of Cilacap and water pollution status of East Plawangan waters of Cilacap based on Cd heavy metal content in water and sediment. The research was conducted in June 2013 using a survey method applying purposive randommsampling technique at six stations in triplicates. Data were analyzed descriptively and comparatively F-tested. The results showed Cd metal content in the water medium ranged betwen 0.010-0.054 mg/L and the media sediments ranged betwen 0.0432-2.205 mg/Kg. Cd content in aqueous media had exceeded quality standard of 0.001 mg/L and was therefore classified as contaminated, while the media sediments at several stations, i.e. I, II, III, and VI hdave exceeded the quality standard thus status was classified as contaminated. However, Cd contents at stations IV and V had not exceeded quality standard 0.7 mg/kg thereby non-polluted status.
