Kesatuan Hidrologis Gambut (KHG) or Peat Hydrological Unit is a land which consist of incomplete soil decomposition of aquatic vegetation that is inundated with anaerobic conditions. Peatlands in Indonesia have common problem, which is adequacy of water availability (water balance) throughout the year and fire risk. This condition makes the holding of studies to ensure this. In this research, study uses secondary data of Peatlands, Pulang Pisau regency, Central of Kalimantan. This research will be modeling groundwater level using unconfined steady aquifer with finite difference method by Qgis Freewat. Then, if possible, the model will be calibrated by direct sampling at some point in the field, so the next will be modeling by comparison results of water level model with water level existing that up to 40 cm in accordance with Government Regulation no. 57 of 2016 on amendment to Government Regulation No. 71 of 2014 on the Protection and Management of Peat Ecosystems. From this research is expected to give some of benefits as follow: 1). Estimating water balance for Palawija Plants in KHG Pulang Pisau, 2). Modeling groundwater level for canal as one of the optimal water management efforts so that peatlands are not too dry and not too wet, so the risk of forest fires can be minimized.
