The Cisadane River that crosses the Tangerang, Banten Province every year is estimated to hold around 14-17 tons of garbage entering from residential areas along the river flow, and which is carried by the flow of water from its head on the slopes of Mount Pangrango and Mount Salak in Bogor, West Java. The influx of large volumes of garbage has disrupted the function of the river as a source of raw water and flood control. The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of the spread of garbage on the Cisadane River. The volume of waste from 13 sub-districts in the Tangerang Region, in August 2018, usually 14 tons to 17 tons. This condition is made worse by the presence of rubbish carried by the flow of water from Bogor and South Tangerang Regencies. Based on 2015 BPS data, the area of residential areas is 61%, 18% rice fields and 17% airports. So it can be understood if floods always occur in several areas of the City of Tangerang, one of which is due to the river flow is not smooth. This research concludes that garbage has caused siltation on the edges, bodies and river banks, consequently disrupting the flow of water and decreasing the function of the Cisadane River. Areas that are easily affected by flooding such as Karawaci Subdistrict, Priuk Subdistrict, Neglasari Subdistrict, Curug Subdistrict, Kosambi Subdistrict, Mekar Kondang Subdistrict, Paku Haji Subdistrict, Sindang Jaya Subdistrict, Sindang Jaya Subdistrict, Teluk Naga Subdistrict
