Wastewater from household activities which is directly discharged into the sewers in settlements can be the cause of surface water pollution, which in turn has a harmful impact on the community This study aims to analyze the removal concentration of BOD and COD organic matter in household wastewater before being discharged into the river flow. Wastewater that directly enters the river can cause river water pollution, and thus it needs to be treated. The treated wastewater comes from residents' domestic activities in RW 08, Srengseng Sawah Village, South Jakarta. Treatment conducted using Constructed Wetland with a Sub-Surface Flow (CW-SSF) system with Echinodorus palaefolius and Vetiveria zizanioides plants. The method used to acclimatize the plants and then move the plants to the SCW-SSF unit, then analyze the quality of wastewater with a detention time of 2 days. The statistical calculation in this study used Analysis of variance. The result of this study shows that the removal efficiency of the BOD concentration is 50% while the COD concentration is 25%. This shows that treatment with constructed wetland can be used to remove the concentration of BOD and COD in grey water from domestic activities.
