River! A valuable asset of the Mother Nature. Its contribution are uncountable, not only that it provide us with the source of water, food and transportation, it’s also harvest life form within it. However, river is like a double edge swords. Past through the centuries, nature disaster such as flood cause by river had taken always many life and cause unimaginable damage to our asset. Even small particle such as sediment inside the river had its own way of affecting our way of life. Due to that, the transportation factor of sediment has to be identified and represent in equation formation so that people can predict and counter attack the foe that is coming. The present study evaluates several existing equations using data of selected rivers in Malaysia (Ghani, 2003). New data were also collected from several sites along Kulim River, Kedah. These data were later used to modified the existing equations for application of the rivers in Malaysia. The modified equations are used to predict the natural phenomena and characteristic of the sediment transport in rivers to secure human life and fortune.
