This development shall be integrated in agri-cultural areas to increase its production. Therefore, identification of the potential location and the type of water harvesting infrastructure are crucial to support and optimize the reservoir construction. Here, this research aims to identify the potential location distribution and the type of water harvesting infrastructure in Lampung Province. A Geographic Information System analysis was conducted using several base maps and thematic maps to extract each region characteristics, which include land use, rice field location, river network, slope, area status, buffer zone, groundwater basin, and rainfall pattern. In addition, a survey was conducted to identify potential water availability and land area, including flow discharge in each region. The results showed that the most suitable types of water harvesting infrastructure were channel reservoirs, followed by river water utilization and shallow wells. All infrastructures are highly dependent on rainfall. This means that channel reservoirs have the largest potential area for irrigation services, followed by the river water utilization, shallow wells, and small reservoirs (<em>embung</em>), respectively.</p> Popi Redjekiningrum, Budi Kartiwa, Misnawati Copyright (c) 2022 Popi Redjekiningrum Thu, 18 Aug 2022 13:54:54 +0700 Baseflow Index Analysis for Bengawan Solo River, Indonesia <p>Hydrological investigation for major Java rivers remains research challenge todays, particularly in identification of runoff characteristics situated in monsoonal climate. This study aims to investigate the value of baseflow index for Bengawan Solo river. We employed daily streamflow data for period 1980-2010 to derive baseflow index (BFI) based on the smoothed minima. We utilized different approaches comprising the non-overlapping 3 days (BFI3), 5 days (BFI5), and 7 days (BFI7) of streamflow to compute the index. We found the average BFI3, BFI5, and BFI7 for this study period are 0.67, 0.56, and 0.49, respectively. It revealed that higher number of non-overlapping days would produce lower BFI, which could be an indication of less baseflow contribution to total streamflow. Additionally, our findings show there is an increasing trend of BFI in the last decade that may be associated with decreasing forest cover in the catchment area. Furthermore, the BFI value will provide a valuable information for key leader in water sector in particular during dry season, and further research is needed to integrate this BFI into sustainable water management index.</p> Muh Taufik, Siti Annisa' Copyright (c) 2022 Muh Taufik, Siti Annisa' Wed, 26 Oct 2022 14:44:09 +0700
