The value of flood flow which occurs with usage of Mockus, Rational and DSİ sentetik method in some pond basins of Bursa compared with a model (WinTR – 55) that was developed by USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) for small watersheds in this thesis. In this study aimed to investigate the feasibility for various hydrological models, WinTR - 55 model was researched if flood flow results which the implementation of the ponds basins or not. Within seventeen basins on the thesis, except for Kestel Ağlaşan-Kayacık Kızılcıklıdere and Gemlik Küçükkumla pond basins, WinTR-55 model estimated greater peak flow. It is thought that the model securely could be used in the flow calculation.
