South district of Bandung is a highland with many mountains, two of them there are Wayang Mountain and Windu Mountain. Cisanti Lake which located at the east side of Wayang Windu Mountains is a source of Citarum River. The river is used to fulfill water need of society in Bandung and surrounding areas. At the west side of Wayang Windu Mountains there are Sukaratu and Cibolang Village which is located at valley of the mountains with a great water surface and soil resources. Besides that there is a geothermal potential that is used by Star Energy Company as a power plant. Regardless of its potential and Cisanti Lake as an upstream of Citarum River must be preserved, there are several problems of environment which can be harmful for human and flora fauna habitats around Wayang Windu Mountains.

The disaster happens caused of human activity such as landslide, flood and sedimentation. All of them caused by land use changing from forest, riparian or tea gardens into agricultural land. Land use changing became agricultural land is carried out by residents to fulfil daily needs except their main profession as tea garden labourers. Besides that, water pollution which is caused by dirt of cows, agriculture and fishery activities bring the decreasing of water quality in the river. Hence, it becomes conflict between human needs and sustainable environment then finally all of those bring disaster which is caused by human itself.

The culture of farming, aquaculture and cattle breeding have become society’s livelihoods, but farming, aquaculture and cattle breeding which are not sustain causing environmental damage and affect the habitats of native flora fauna. Unsustainable agriculture was found in around of Cisanti Lake area causing landslide and flood can be resolved by the forest planting method which combines forest with agriculture in one site called agroforestry. People can plant vegetable without eliminates the functions of the forest itself. Unsustainable aquaculture by fish ponds was found in Sukaratu and Cibolang Village causing decline of river water quality. Residual of fish feed and chemical of medicine can pollute water of the river. Decreasing of river water quality can be resolved by natural water treatment using gravel, soil and aquatic vegetation which is placed in every pond. Unsustainable cattle breeding were found in Cibolang and Cibereum Village (near Cisanti Lake) causing water polluted by dirt of cows till decreasing quality of river water towards downstream. Building wetland near the cattle breeding is the solution to reduce water pollution. Wetland design uses multi layer system and horizontal flow model.
