After affixing moringa seeds with a variety of different doses, the results showed as follows: the dose of 0.5 g / L = 4.52 NTU; a dose of 1.0 g / L = 7.76 NTU; dose of 1.5 g / L = 9.14 NTU, and a dose of 2.0 g / L = 8.51 NTU. The optimum dose range moringa seeds needed at River raw water Betapus = 0.5 g / L with a percentage of 94.28%.
