The primary information to complete this research paper
will be the gathering of data. In PAGASA (Philippine
Tullahan River is one of the three major rivers Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services

With more frequent intense rains, the riverbanks flood
regularly and flooding reaches farther into low-lying and
densely populated areas of the city.
Artificial Neural Network (ANN) are computer programs
that simulate the human brain process information to gather
the knowledge by detecting the patterns and relationship in
data and learn from experience not in programming. ANN
can combine and incorporate both literature based and
experimental data to solve problems. There is various
application of ANN it can summarized into classification or
pattern recognition, prediction and modeling.
A neural network is a system of hardware and/or software
patterned after the operation of neurons in the human brain.
Neural networks -- also called artificial neural networks -- are
a variety of deep learning technologies. Commercial
applications of these technologies generally focus on solving
complex signal processing or pattern recognition problems.
Examples of significant commercial applications since 2000
include handwriting recognition for check processing,
speech-to-text transcription, oil-exploration data analysis,
weather prediction and facial recognition.
This study is focusing on the forecasting of water level in
Tullahan River at Marulas using ANN. This model will be the
tool of the researchers to come up to the desired result. This
research aims to give daily forecasting of water level on
Tullahan River in BBB, Marulas using artificial network.
The researchers are analyzing the data that can affect
Tullahan River limited along the river flow and at Marulas,
Valenzuela City.

this network, the data that were input will undertake to the 13.69 13.76

and the water level as dependent variables. In this work, the 13.49 13.56
researchers developed models to predict the water level of the
Tullahan River. A process of Feed-Forward Back
Propagation was used to simulate the network. The number
of neurons used is 3 and the number of layers is 2 to get a

number of hidden nodes, was a trial and-error procedure until
it satisfies the given R Value. The R Values are shown below.
The preferred spelling of the word “acknowledgment” in
America is without an “e” after the “g”. Avoid the stilted
expression “one of us (R. B. G.) thanks ...”. Instead, try “R.
V. CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION B. G. thanks...”. Put sponsor acknowledgments in the
unnumbered footnote on the first page.
The template will number citations consecutively within
brackets [1]. The sentence punctuation follows the bracket [2].
Refer simply to the reference number, as in [3]—do not use
“Ref. [3]” or “reference [3]” except at the beginning of a
sentence: “Reference [3] was the first ...”

Number footnotes separately in superscripts. Place the

actual footnote at the bottom of the column in which it was
cited. Do not put footnotes in the abstract or reference list. Use
letters for table footnotes.
Unless there are six authors or more give all authors’
names; do not use “et al.”. Papers that have not been
published, even if they have been submitted for publication,
should be cited as “unpublished” [4]. Papers that have been
accepted for publication should be cited as “in press” [5].
Capitalize only the first word in a paper title, except for proper
nouns and element symbols.
For papers published in translation journals, please give
the English citation first, followed by the original foreign-
language citation [6].
