The study was conducted from March to October 2017 using a single case study. The location of this research was along Batanghari River Basin in Batanghari Regency. The results showed that community activities along the river Batanghari are not as it used to be because it has experienced a shift or transfer function. In the Dutch colonial period Batanghari river had a very important role, namely as a means of public transportation by boat. In addition Batanghari river was also used by society as a means to transact or traditional markets at some point on the edge of the river Batanghari, but now the markets are not working anymore. Many buildings that are on the edge of the river Batanghari has already damaged by time. This is because the Batanghari river has begun shallow and cannot be passed by large ships. Besides, the progress of land and air transportation make Batanghari River began to be abandoned.
