AbstractIn small-scale reservoir management, ecological factors must be a top priority, because the sustainability of the ecosystem in the reservoir is very important to maintain sustainable water availability. Efforts to maintain water quality, reduce pollution and maintain the balance of the ecosystem in the reservoir must be carried out consistently. In an effort to maintain the sustainability of small-scale reservoir management, collaboration between the government, local communities and other related parties is needed. By prioritizing ecological, social and economic aspects in a balanced way, it is hoped that the management of water resources in small-scale reservoirs can run in a sustainable manner, provide benefits to local communities, and preserve the surrounding environment. The research method used in this study is to use quantitative methods with a total sample of 137 respondents. Data collection techniques used observation and structured interview techniques to collect data on ecological, social and economic factors that affect the sustainability of small-scale reservoirs. The analysis technique used is the SEM (Structural Equation Modeling) statistical test with AMOS program. Based on the results of the research conducted, it can be concluded that the first hypothesis which states the influence of ecological factors on the sustainability of small-scale reservoirs cannot be accepted. Then the second and third hypotheses show that social and economic factors together have a significant influence on the sustainability of small-scale reservoirs. This shows that in the management of water resources in small-scale reservoirs, not only ecological factors need to be considered, but also social and economic factors.
