Indonesia, as one of the largest population country, faces a problem with the availability of clean water. The increasing of the population every year results in the increasing of clean water needed. It also causes the increase of wastewater, especially domestic wastewater. As one of domestic wastewater, household wastewater in Indonesia, especially DKI Jakarta, is one of the main cause of river pollution. Household wastewater disposed directly into the river. Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Total Suspended Solid (TSS) are some substances contained in it. Therefore, it is necessary to manage the wastewater before the disposal. Filtration processing is one of the wastewater treatment method used to reduce the pollutant level in the water. The materials are able to reduce the concentration of COD and TSS. This study aims to verify if filtration can be used as a method to reduce household wastewater by the study of literature. Besides, the researcher also used other materials to process sample from household wastewater. Filtration can be used as a simple method, so that it can be applied by the community, especially those not covered by wastewater treatment plant (WWTP).
