The reservoir is now a means of sightseeing and also relaxing with family. The Dawuhan Reservoir functions as irrigation which irrigates the rice fields of 9 villages in 3 sub-districts. Its existence has an important role for the life of the farmers.

The history or origin of the reservoir construction is indeed for the irrigation of the local community. The reservoir area is about 1,273 hectares. In 2008 the local community empowered the reservoir area using a keramba system for cultivating fresh fish.

However, the condition of the water decreases when the dry season comes, so the local government recommends cultivating it with a seed system during the rainy season. The fish harvest was carried out 5 months later.

When the weather conditions are normal, the reservoir can irrigate all the rice fields of the nine villages with a total of 2,823 hectares in Wonoasri, Balerejo, and Madiun Districts. However, during the dry season, the local community uses it by fishing or planting crops.

Dawuhan Reservoir is also a favorite fishing spot. When you come here you will see the sight of a number of visitors waiting for their hooks to be caught by fish.

Photo Hunting

Besides the view of the fishing people, the children also enjoy playing here. They usually play kites even in hot conditions.

In addition, this reservoir can also be a place for photography hunting. You can take a picture with the reservoir background and the mountain behind it.

There are several boats leaning on the edge of the reservoir. These boats belong to residents who work in the fields or rice fields. Boat is one of their means of transportation to reach rice fields or fields.

Actually, you don’t have to cross this artificial lake to get to the rice fields because you can go through the land route but you have to turn about 5 kilometers and have to cross the forest.

Besides functioning as a means of transportation to rice fields, fields or fishing, this boat is also rented, which is only Rp. 2,000 to replace the cost of diesel.

Farmers used to start farming in the morning and come home in the afternoon or evening.

Because the dry season is quite long in the last few months, the water discharge has decreased. For farmers who have a barrier near the reservoir, it is not so difficult.

However, several villages below have experienced difficulties in irrigating their rice fields. If the dry season continues, the situation may get worse, especially when the planting season arrives.

The water in this reservoir only meets the needs of irrigation for fields, not for households. For household water such as drinking, cooking, bathing, local residents use well water.

Casualties

This lake once took its toll around 2011. At that time there were 6 elementary school children playing in the reservoir area. The five of them boarded the boat until they reached the middle. 1 child happened not to be on the boat.

Only about 5 meters away from the edge of the reservoir suddenly the boat was filled with water. The children did not know if the boat leaning on the shore was actually leaking.

When they realized that the boat was leaking and they were going to drown, the five boys panicked and made the boat not balance, rocked, shook and finally capsized.

They fell into the water with a depth of approximately 2-3 meters. 2 out of the five children can swim so they can reach the edge while the three themes cannot swim.

Seeing their three friends drowned, they immediately ran to ask the local people for help. Instantly the residents came and tried to find the three drowned children. After 2 hours, the bodies of the 3 children were found.
