Sasirangan - the traditional fabric, claimed as an icon of Banjarmasin and core part of South Kalimantan identity - has been produced for a long time by home industries and contributes to local community economic development. Practically, activities of Sasirangan home industries use several chemical coloring agents that produce liquid waste and harm the ecological life of the Martapura River in Banjarmasin. The purpose of this study is to identify the potential of liquid waste of sasirangan for pollution in the Martapura River. Certainly, It would importantly contribute to providing a solution to overcome these waste effects on the surrounding environment. This study used the observation method and survey approach to the Sasirangan home industry in three locations around the Martapura River in Banjarmasin City. Sampling was conducted both at the point of the inlet and outlet of these locations. Then, the samples were laboratory tested and quantitatively analyzed for biological parameters (total Cr and total Cd content in Snakehead Fish) and chemical parameters (BOD, COD, and content of oil and fat). The results showed that the wastewater content of sasirangan generally was still within the limits of quality standards permitted according to the Governor of South Kalimantan Regulation Number 04 the Year 2007. Nevertheless, there were still several parameters that exceed the quality standard, for the content of heavy metal chromium in Snakehead Fish with a value of 0.456 mg/kg and COD parameters of the upstream sample inlet with a value of 348.9 mg/L.
