Abstract


The Risk of Public Health Impact of Cadmium (Cd) Contaminated Drinking Water and Marine products in Kepulauan Seribu.

Study on the risk assessment of public health impact of Cadmium contaminated drinking waterand marine products (fish and shellfish) was conducted on Lancang, Panggang, Untung Jawa and TidungIs land Kepulauan Seribu District, OK! Jakarta in 2006. The aim of this research was to predict risk due tothe consumption of drinking water and marine products. Forty three samples of drinking the water and 110 samples of marine products were taken. Samples were determined by using atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS), with air-acetylene flame method. One hundred and fifty two respondents who have dietary habits (including marine products consumption) were interviewed to study consumption pattern of drinking water and marine products. The results were: Soil water, rain water, and reverse osmosis product were used as drinking water resources in Kepulauan Seribu which has below detection limit up to 0.021 ppm level of cadmium concentration. More than 30% drinking water samples were exceeding the cadmium concentration standard (regulation of the Ministry of Health, Permenkes no.416/1990). The highest concentration of cadmium was detected in Tidung island (7 times higher than permissible standard levels). The result of marine products sample analysis showed that Cadmium concentration was in the range of 0.024-0.795 part per million (ppm). Risk assessment showed that detected Cd in drinking water and marine products in all area did not have significant impact to its public health (RQ<1).

Keywords: Cadmium, risk asssessment, drinking water, marine products
