Abstract

River-bed sedimentation occurs due to sequences of erosion, transport and depositional process. The sediments input to the river can raise the flood levels and overload the river channel. The quantity of sediments transported by a river in a given section during time is composed of the suspended load discharge. Nowadays, there are various invent to measure this load. One of that is study of variations in rive water sample over time and then carries out filtration analysis to identify the total suspended solids (TSS) of the samples. the concentration of suspended solid (SS) is obtained by measuring the sediment quantity collected through the membrane filter. For TSS and Turbidity measurement, two sets of sampling were collected in before and after rain events corresponding with the month of February and March in the year 2013. The result shows the difference in the two sets of sampling and expressed the sediment input to the river for every rain event.
