In the frame towards integrated basin-based water quality management (BBWQM) in the Upper Citarum River (UCR) Basin, Indonesia, identification of a priority area for urgent remediation by comparing WQ among monitoring points in the basin was investigated in this study. Normalized rank means (NRM) approach was selected in this priority analysis owing to a low compliance of water quality (WQ) in the study area with the government standard. With relatively poorer WQ, the downstream area of the

By incorporating this priority analysis with allowable limit of load discharge inside this identified priority area as well as with proper land use management, overall BBWQM framework in the UCR Basin could be of prospective approach for future WQ improvement in the basin.
