In order to irrigate extensive zones between the rivers Daule, Vinces, Nuevo and Puebloviejo, an artificial canal heading eastwards from the Daule River will provide water to each of the rivers and small streams along its way (ACOTECNIC, 2010). 6).

Combining this expression with Eq. III-7, λ is expressed as a function of τ : λ = f (τ ) = 1 4(1 − cos 2π τ )2 Eq. III-8 Finally, Eq. III-8 may be a suitable way to determine λ. Through the direct observation of the discharge hydrographs at each involved monitoring station, it is possible to obtain the average duration of the rainy season in the area (in days). This might be a reasonable estimation for τ . By means of this parameter, more information about typical behaviours or patterns of the long-run trend component (mt) and the short-term noise (ct) can be learnt.

5 km ). The reservoir operative 3 capacity is around 138 hm (Efficacitas, 2006) and it is formed at the junction of the Baba and Toachi rivers (Fig. 4-1). The Baba reservoir will transfer a maximum of 3 234 m /s to the Daule-Peripa dam through a canal 8 km long and the Chaune River during the dry season (Efficacitas, 2006) (Alvarez, 2007). Since this project includes water retention and diversion, important volume reductions are expected on the lower course of the Vinces River. In this regard, 3 Efficacitas (2006) suggested an ecological flow value of 10 m /s that may ensure not only navigability but also sustainability for the living species along the river.
