The Role of Integrated Water Management in Watershed Flood Management
Kazem Hemadi, Abdolkarim Behnia, Ali Mohammad Akhoond-Ali and Davoud-Reza Arab

Abstract:
The aim of this study, flood management, in a system of a reservoir and ungaged sub-basins was evaluated. By means of frequency analysis and index hydrograph method, flood hydrographs with different return periods for these under study sub-basins were calculated. After determination of inflow hydrograph to dam reservoir, flood routing in reservoir and consequently in river network by three scenarios were conducted. The results have shown that dam reservoir located in one of the sub-basins, functioned well as a flood controller, but because of no watershed analysis as a hydrologic unit and comprehensive consideration in watershed studies, the flood control resultant in the out point of system is in the order of zero.
