Cilegon and Serang and industrial estates in the area. Ecologically, Rawa
Danau is the last and the only mountainous freshwater swamp still exists in
Java island. In the last decade there are several studies that recommend
increasing the capacity of Rawa Danau as water storage. Recently, the
Master Plan of Rawa Danau has been published by the Province of Banten
Planning Agency. It is concluded that increasing the water level in Rawa
Danau by 2 meters would satisfies the 2010 projected water demand in
Serang and Cilegon. We belief that the action could endanger the
existence of both the swamp forest and the rice field in the vicinity. In this
paper we describe an alternative action that could increase the water
storage capacity of Rawa Danau whilst the ecological function of the
swamp could be preserved as well.
