Water hyacinth is widely recognized as a pest that often inflicts complications to public water supplies such as reservoirs. The population of water hyacinth in Cirata Reservoir, West Java has come to an alarming measure, it blanketed almost the entire water surface. This condition threatens the Keramba Jaring Apung (KJA) (translated: floating net) cultivation activities. A fact that these water plants had spread near the turbine of Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Air (PLTA) (translated: Hydroelectric Power Plant) is even more distressing because they can interfere with West Java’s main electricity supply.
