Originally, Likas Lagoon was developed as a retention pond for flood water discharged from Dab. Yeh Villa and Likas Jaya areas. But, it is also a well known place fur fishing, bird watching and a habitat fur many types of species. However, the result from the analyses of surface water for Likas Lagoon indicates that Likas Lagoon is moderately polluted. The pH is almost neutral (mean value of 7.13), sulfate concentIation ranged from 30.00 to 57.00 mgL¯¹ SO₄²¯ and chloride concentration ranged from 12.00 to 31.99 mgL¯¹ C1. These three parameters were recorded as below the level that has been limited in INWQS. Meanwhile, the aluminium concentration ranged from 0.27 to 0.62 mgL¯¹ Al³� and iron concentration ranged from 0.37 to 2.61 mgL¯¹ Fe, which have exceeded the level of INWQS for both parameters. Water monitoring in Likas Lagoon should be done to maintain a good quality.
