Analysis of water level in a reservoir such as Boezem is needed. The purpose of this research is to find out whether the procedures implemented in managing the Boezem are appropriate to deal with various situations. To do this, a simulation is needed so that the movement of water in the channel to the Boezem can be analyzed. This research was conducted at Kalidami Boezem in the city of Surabaya which has an area of 20,936.69 m2 with an average depth of Boezem of 3.8 m. The simulation is carried out using the Storm Water Management Model (SWMM 5.1) application with rain data on February 25, 2020 and a 5-year return period rainfall data. The simulation results show that the model constructed has been calibrated based on the RMSE method and produced an error value of 0.11. Because the model has been well calibrated, it will be possible to do next simulation to see how the Channel and Boezem are performing to deal with various scenarios that might be encountered later on. Based on the results of hydraulic simulation using a 5-year return period rainfall data, it can be seen that within 45 minutes, Kalidami Boezem has been filled with water.
