Abstract

Ipoh is one of a well-known city in Malaysia. As the city rapidly develop, the rate of pollution increases. More garbage is thrown away and as Malaysia is not a country whom practices recycling nor waste separation, all the waste will go to Papan landfill. Papan Landfill produces leachate that will be discharge to the nearby river that will eventually connects to Kinta River. Thus, the water quality deteriorates as organic matter increases in the Kinta River. This paper will collect a total of 6 samples altogether that consists of raw leachate sample, treated leachate and also 4 samples from the nearest river (Johan River) to determine the water quality index and also to detect any signs of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH). PAH is known to be carcinogenic and mutagenic therefore the existence of these microorganisms are harmful to humans. On top of that, the water quality index will also be obtained to know the suitability of the water to be use by the society. This project was able to detect the presence of PAH in the nearby river where the treated leachate had been discharged. However, as the concentration of water increases along Johan River, the PAH number began to drops thus the water quality index after that point in Johan River did had a big change thus showing that it is not advisable to be consume nor used by the society.
