Abstract

A river ecosystem quality assessment was carried out at Sungai Kongkoi, Negeri Sembilan by using benthic macroinvetebrates as biological indicators. Samplings were done at 5 selected stations and three replicates of water quality measurements were conducted. Benthic macroinvetebrates samplings were done at the same stations and water samplings were done using Surber net. In situ measurement has been done for temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen (DO) and conductivity using the YSI 556 MPS meter. Laboratory analysis was undertaken for total suspended solids (TSS), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), chemical oxygen demand (COD) and ammoniacal-nitrogen (NH3-N). Our results showed that Sungai Kongkoi had an excellent water quality and can be classified as Class I according to the Malaysian water quality index (WQI) and the national water quality standard (NWQS). One-way ANOVA test showed that most water quality parameters did not differ significantly between the sampling stations (p>0.05, α= 0.05). A total of 2 phyla, 3 classes, 8 orders, 32 families and 3228 individuals were identified and dominated by Baetidae, Perlidae, Hydropsychidae and Elmidae. Factor analysis results showed that each of the above families were suitable to be used as biological indicators in recretional areas.
