Abstract: The ecosystem of river is one of the most powerful forces of determination of hydrologic regime. The study emphasis and focuses that hydrological situation of river which has a significant impact on operation of sluices and dams. River Yangtze is chosen as a best specimen to analyze the power effects of the dams and sluices upstream on the hydrological regime. Hydrological station was set to examine the daily flows where periodical impacts of hydrological periods were distributed into two segments as pre and post-impacts. The variability rang of 33 flow coefficients were calculated on the basis of the IHA to compute the set task. The result of finding shows that dams have a powerful effect on hydrologic regime. The studies calculated the aggregate eco-hydrological targets of the river that give some support for ecosystem management and water resources of Yangtze River. Dams and sluices determined by hydrological alteration and to determine the effect of dams on the hydrological condition at the stream gauge site the hydrologic alteration was calculated.
