3.1 General

The purpose of the low flow analysis is to provide a general idea about the
hydrological condition of the Bengawan Solo River basin based on the available
climatic and hydrological records at the hydro-meteorological observation
network stations. The low flow analysis was carried out to estimate the low flow
conditions at an arbitrary location in the CDMP study area including Bengawan
Solo River system. The estimated low flow conditions are essential for the water
demand and supply balance calculation from the viewpoint of water supply

A natural runoff is usually necessary for the water demand and supply balance
calculation. The natural runoff is defined as the river runoff that is not affected by
any water uses in a catchment area. The continuous natural flow is also necessary
in a time sequence of more than 20 years. The natural flow is principally obtained
based on the observed discharges with some adjustment to eliminate the
influences due to water uses.

The observed Bengawan Solo River discharges are subject to various river
structures such as dams, intake weirs, irrigation pumping stations, etc.
Furthermore, the available runoff records are more or less interrupted due to
lacking of observation (see Fig.3.1.1 of the observed daily discharge hydrographs
at Jurug, Ketonggo and Babat station and Table 3.1.1 of the monthly mean
observed discharge at major river water level gauging stations).

For the low flow analysis, it has been decided to model the hydrological process
of the basin using a computer model.

The low flow analysis and overall work flow of master planning for this study is
schematically shown as follows:
