A lot of natural rivers facing sedimentation problems either caused by erosion or human activities, but some are related to river management that arise from the adequate prediction of sediment behaviour. This study was carried out at Punggor river to determine the relationship between sediment transport and flow rate; and between suspended solid and turbidity. In-situ measurement and laboratory analysis were done to obtain data for river system. Result found that relationship between suspended solid and turbidity; and flow rate and sediment load are directly proportional where R2 equal to 0.96 and 0.72 respectively. As a conclusion, flow rate has played as major part in transporting the sediment load to other section of river based on changes of river profile
