Bekasi is a development city near Jakarta as capital city of Indonesia. Total population of Bekasi has reached 2.5 million (2003) with population density about 8.595 people per square kilometer and its vicinity is about 21.049 ha. The growing population and business activities have caused a tremendous conversion of agricultural land for houses, offices industrial parks, etc. This changing land use is likely become the source of much erosion/sediment, water flow runoff and garbage, which in turn causing floods in rainy seasons and lacking of water for municipal use in dry seasons. Water resources balance is become worse especially in this area, and these situations seem to be more horrifying in the future. Therefore, the water problem needs an extremely great attention. The key to undertake these problems is a set of activities in an integrated and holistic watershed management programs. The integrated watershed management program should be similar with sustainable development program in the watersheds. All of these activities should be planned carefully to determine what to build where and implemented accordingly.
