In recent years, human activities, such as urbanization and agriculture, have been blamed for the degradation of water quality in many developing countries. Rivers draining agricultural land are susceptible to diffused or non-point source pollution. A study was conducted in Timah Tasoh catchment areas with the aim to investigate the effect of land use activities and eutrophication of the Timah Tasoh reservoir. A water quality monitoring programme was carried out from January 2001. This paper, however, focuses on the longitudinal variation of water quality parameters of Sungai Jarum as one of the two major water sources for the reservoir.
