Electricity is the most convenient form of energy is converted into heat, power motion, magnets, etc.. Thus much electricity generated for consumption and industrial lighting. Electrification in East Java has only reached 64.9% Households affordable by PLN and most are in urban areas and most of the hamlet not electrified. Electricity is also one of the primary needs of human life so we need a Power Plants efficient. Therefore, it is necessary to have an alternative energy source to solve the energy shortage. One of the alternative power source that can be developed by utilizing the potential of water is micro hydro power plant. Efforts to build a micro hydro power plant is a constructive effort to urge people to care about the environment in real terms. Using water to turn a turbine power plant, the water flow must be maintained. Maintain the quality of the forest is the absolute choice for people around who use the forests to live and expect electricity from micro-hydro. Keeping forests also means maintaining water flow from the spring as a generator. Availability of water in the village Burno - District Senduro - Lumajang possible to develop micro hydro power plant (micro power). The plan of the area will take advantage of hydropower as a source of electrical energy supply. From the above background, the water potential survey was conducted to obtain data and information beginning hydropower potential as a basis for planning and development of micro power. This survey involves determining potential locations and measurements using the global positioning system head brand Garmin GPSMAP 76CSx type. In addition to using the altimeter, altitude difference measurement is also performed manually using a tape measure with spirit level and string method. River water discharge measurements carried out by measuring the speed of the river current using devices or current propeller meters Flowatch brand. Micro power potential of survey data in areas Burno - District Senduro - Lumajang can be known to have the potential to be developed as an effective location of micro power plants with a head that can be used is 8.3 meters with a measurable discharge 0.383 m3/s so that the potential for hydraulic power possessed is 31.153 kW.
