Rawadanau, located in Serang, Banten, is the main water supply for the Cilegon industrial area, West Coast of Java, Indonesia, has geothermal potential. Understanding groundwater origin and quality is an essential factor in determining appropriate actions to save water supply sources. This paper aims to answer the groundwater origin that fills the Rawadanau, whose rocks are composed of volcanic products with evidence of the main elements of water chemistry and stable isotopes (δ2H and δ18O).

Groundwater found consists of hot springs, cold springs, dug wells, river water. Hierarchical analysis clusters based on water chemistry and stable isotopes can be grouped into two, cluster K (K1 and K2) and clusters L, respectively. Data of δ2H and δ18O of the spring waters in the Rawadanau indicate that they are of meteoric origin, and there has been evaporation from several springs. Water comes from meteoric water with stable isotopes content of δ18O between -6.39 to -4.82 by two main mechanisms, namely rock dominance, and evaporation dominance. Aquifers are composed of product volcanic with the dominant composition rock of porphyritic andesite, basaltic andesite, and andesite. The multivariate statistical analysis results besides pH and SO4, all parameters (cation and anions) showed significant correlation. There are four groundwater facies, namely Ca-HCO3, Ca-Mg-HCO3, Mg-Ca-HCO3, and Na-Cl.
