In general, tropical soil is characterized by low Cation Exchange Capacity of clay mineral, low base saturation, high aluminum solubility, low pH and low organic matter content. This characteristics resulted in the low ability of the soil to carry electrons. For this reason, it is necessary to additive treatment to the soil which will be used as grounding media. This research aims to compare the effect of soil resistance decrease between soil mixing with bentonite, lime and building waste debris. The direct measurements were conducted by using Earth Ground Resistance Tester tool. It can be concluded that the addition of additives has an effect on the decrease of grounding resistance value. The best response to the decrease in resistance consecutively was in the mixture of soil with debris, then followed by soil with lime and soil with bentonite. This finding was prospective for the development of artificial grounding media to reduce the risk of lightning hazards in dense residential areas while reducing the burden and utilizing debris waste from negative externalities of development.
