Description The small industry of the laundry is exploding. The development of this industry needs to get attention because it is in the industry to dispose of the waste of residual production to the ditch or to the body of water without processing. Pollution to the environment can arise because of wastewater that contains many pollutants in the form of fats and other organic compounds derived from dirty clothing, some chemical compounds such as tripolyphosphate, detergent, and surfactants difficult to wave naturally in nature. This research knows the influence of the concentration of alum to decrease phosphate levels. This research uses a quantitative descriptive method against the remaining liquid wastes in the housing dumped into the water and sewer that flows to the area of the inhabitants. Determination of phosphate levels using UV-Vis spectrophotometers with Vanadate method at 410 nm wavelength. The results of the study showed an influence on the addition of alum to a certain concentration on phosphoric levels.
Industri kecil penatu saat ini berkembang pesat. Perkembangan industri ini perlu mendapat perhatian karena pada umumnya di kalangan industri ini membuang langsung limbah sisa produksinya ke selokan atau ke badan air tanpa pengolahan terlebih dahulu. Pencemaran terhadap lingkungan dapat timbul karena air limbah yang banyak mengandung polutan berupa lemak dan senyawa organik lain yang berasal dari pakaian kotor, beberapa senyawa kimia seperti tripolyphosphat sebagai pengisi, detergen dan surfaktan yang sulit terombak secara alami di alam. Tujuan penelitian ini adalah untuk mengetahui pengaruh konsentrasi tawas terhadap penurunan kadar fosfat. Penelitian ini menggunakan metode deskriptif kuantitatif terhadap limbah cair sisa pencucian pakaian di perumahan yang dibuang ke selokan dan air selokan yang mengalir sampai ke area pesawahan penduduk.  Penentuan kadar fosfat menggunakan spektrofotometer UV-Vis dengan metode Vanadate pada panjang gelombang 410 nm. Hasil penelitian pada menunjukkan pengaruh penambahan tawas pada konsentrasi tertentu terhadap penurunan kadar fosfat.
