The Observation of heavy metals in sediments and gongong snails in the Coastal of Senggarang in Tanjungpinang city has been conducted in May-June 2016. The red mud pool located on Senggarang is a pool containing liquid waste excavation of bauxite mine predicted containing any heavy metals such as lead. The liquid wastes come into the waterworks, settle and then turn into a sediment. Senggarang is one of the major producing gongong snails which are also known as a typical food for Tanjungpinang community. The presence of heavy metal pollution that accumulates in the waterworks can contaminate humans as highest food chain. If a metal accumulates in the animals and plants tissues which are then consumed by humans, it concludes that humans as the highest food chain at food pyramid, the body of the humans will also accumulate the heavy metal. This can lead to a high risk to health. The aim of this study is to know the content of heavy metal content in sediments and gongong snails in the waterworks at Senggarang. This research is an analytic observational with cross sectional design. Sampling technique used purposive sampling in which the sediment and Gongong snails were taken at 3 areas that is commonly used by fisherman to take gongong snails. The Measurements of lead metal content used Atomic absorption spectrophotometer (AAS). The result of this study found that the average of Lead metal contained in gongong snails at 5:39 mg / kg and sediment at 36.84 mg / kg. This result has exceeded the quality standard ISO 7387: 2009 about the maximum limit of heavy metal contamination in food, and the standard of Sediment Quality Guidelines on the threshold Lead metal contamination in sediment for coastal and marine waters. Suggestion related to this research is to do actions and direct supervison toward bauxite excavation area in Senggarang and also conduct an analysis research of metal content of Pb to all types of marine life.
