The impact of changing the status of forest zone in Wosi Rendani to become a non-forest zone also causes changes in a forest coverage zone, forest conversion, and its subsequent consequences. This was marked by the rapid housing development in the zone, which impacted water function changes in the Rendani River Catchment. This study aims to determine the consequences of determining the status of the Wosi Rendani forest zone in which there is Rendani River as one of the water sources used by the Regional Drinking Water Company (PDAM) in Manokwari city. Changes in forest coverage were reviewed for several years after determining the status of zones that switched from Protected Forests to Other Use Zones. The results showed that there has been a change in land cover by 7.38% from Primary Dry Land Forest to Secondary Dry Land Forest and increased the zone of Mixed Dry Land Agriculture by 6.97%. In addition to changes in a forest coverage zone, it also resulted in a land conversion, most of which were dominated by settlements. A further result of the change in the forest coverage.
