Abstract

One of the basic factors for continuous economic development in tropical areas is the availability of the water supply from the forest water catchment. Hydrological characteristics analysis is important to determine the availability of water which later influences the event of flash flood, surface flow velocity, base flow and underground water retention. Hydrological characteristics analysis of industrial town of Bandar Bam Nilai (BBN) was carried out based on the topography map analysis covering an area of 416 km 2 and located in sensitive highland region with various channels and basic level rivulets that are formed as rain catchment areas. In total, there are 26 ponds in the study area where 14 of it functions as rain catchment pond and flood control. Systematic long term planning by the developer at the early stage of land development in this new industrial town prevents the possibility of flood Occurrences especially at the downstream of the river.
