After Three Gorges Reservoir building up, the natural river course and the near hillside inside the backwater region are inundated to form a fairly wide man-made lake which affects the hydrological characteristics and floodwater transmission to different degrees. When the reservoir impound to high water level, the conflux time is obviously shortened, the flood-peak discharge increase, and the peak type became sharper. The change of runoff yield and concentration makes the forecast scheme unable to be applied well. Based on the practice of Three Gorges Reservoir operation, the rainfall-runoff characteristics of the backwater region under the condition of high water level are analysed and summarized, then a set of unit hydrographs suitable for rainfall-runoff calculation are recalibrated, which has great reference value for hydrological forecasting of Three Gorges region.
