Source Matelas, located in the West State, Republic of Haiti, is a town with scarce economical resources and low quality of life, mainly because of the absence almost total of water. In this work we give a first approximation to a water reservoir pre-feasibility study, related to water supply quantification of the region, by means of hydrological methods to estimate unknown information. Long term components of the hydrological balance are calculated and daily mean yield that serves the model of reservoir simulation is estimated. The mean runoff calculated for the Source Matelas River is 0.026 m3/s. Based on reservoir modeling, volume needed to supply different percentages of the mean runoff is calculated. Therefore, it can be seen that population water demand will be supplied totally if a reservoir of 212000 m3 volume is constructed.
