Human activities that do not heed the rules of the land can cause environmental damage that affects the occurrence of floods and landslides. This study
aimed to analyze the biophysical degradation and trauma condition of the community due to flooding in the Miu Watershed. This research was carried
out in Miu Watershed as a part of Palu Watershed in Central Sulawesi province. Number of land units as the sample of land degradation measurement
was 76 units of land. The research variables were land degradation with parameter (prediction of erosion rate, potential erosion, actual erosion, erosion
hazard level, slope classes in Miu Watershed), material losses (Rupiah) and trauma during flood. The data analysis was quantitative-descriptive
analysis on each research variable obtained from the data collecting. Land degradation is indicated by land cover condition which dominantly
undergone by secondary forest of about 67.47% of the total area of Miu Watershed. Critical land reached 3.87% of the Miu Watershed area. Actual
erosion rate in 76 units of land with severe category was 35.27% and very severe was 11.41%. The land degradation in Miu Watershed with (moderate
- severe) erosion rate was about 78.44% of the Miu Watershed area. Flood that occurs every year causes the respondents to experience high material
losses of about Rp 995,760,000 and 34.9% suffered losses> Rp 5,000,000. The psychosocial aspect consisting 7 objects has triggered the traumatic
impact of the respondents due to frequent flooding. The Miu Watershed is degraded and aggravated by the disruption of function in the ecosystem
of protected forest area (PF) and limited production forest (LPF) so that the water management and conservation areas are not optimal, resulting in
frequent floods and landslides during the rainy season. Flood that occurs every year creates material losses and triggers trauma impacts on the
communities in the watershed area of Miu.

Key words: Degradation of Miu Watershed area, flush flood, material loss, trauma.

1) Erosion Rate Prediction Value (A).

Factors affecting erosion are erosivity, erodibility, slope length and steepness, vegetation, and soil conservation
To predict (presume) the amount of soil loss due to erosion, the USLE (Universal Soil Loss Equation) equation is
used, as follows14.
Information :
A = The amount of land loss per unit of land area (ton/ha/year)
R =The rainfall erosivity factor
K =Soil erodibility factor
LS =Slope length and steepness
C =Vegetation factor
P =Soil conservation measures factor
2) Tolerable soil erosion value (T)
Determining tolerable soil erosion value (T)should consider: the thickness of topsoil, soil physical properties, prevention of
gutters, decreased organic matter and nutrient loss.
The T value in Indonesia based on the equivalent depth and sustainability of the soil is15:

Rate of erosion hazard (REH) can be determined using the erosion hazard category matrix, which is a combination
