Studies of suspended sediment and water flux have been conducted on 22-23 January and 26-27 February 2007. This study was conducted during one tidal cycle in Menggatal River mouth. Menggatal River mouth is situated at west bay of Kota Kinabalu and one of the main inlets into Sepanggar Bay. The objectives of this study are to identify the suspended concentration during tidal changes, to observed total water flux and sediment flux during flood tide and ebb tide in Menggatal River. Water samples were collected using water sampler and the samples were analyzed in the laboratory. The result of this study showed that the time average water velocities during flood tide were higher than ebb tide. Suspended sediment concentration in Menggatal River was higher during ebb tide than flood tide and water flux was higher during flood tide than ebb tide. Sediment fluxes were slightly different during flood tide and ebb tide.
