The Kaso River (Sungai Kaso or Kacu) is a stream in the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo. One of its tributaries is the Seputan River. The Kaso flows into the Mahakam River.[1] In 1889, Tromp reported three villages of Bukat people on the Kaso. In fact the villages were on the Penane River, a tributary of the Kacu at Long Mecai. The semi-nomadic Seputan people also live on the Kacu at times.[2]
