Sangon Hamlet is included in the mountains which are dominated by andesite rocks and volcanic breccias which cross each other and have a distribution of joints and faults forming a fracture. The fracture is a medium for draining water in the area. There is a difference in ground water level as seen from the well. To re-detail the groundwater flow that has been formed, a groundwater flow pattern modeling is carried out. The modeling is done by numerical method assisted by Modflow Flex Software. For building the model, it is necessary to prepare a concept model, calibration and validation. In this area there are 2 aquifer systems, namely unconfined aquifers and aquitards. Furthermore, the model was calibrated using the sensitivity analysis method. The calibration results are obtained, namely the RMS value of 8.74% with a standard error estimate of 1.27 m and a correlation coefficient of 0.98. From this model, it is known that the flow of water moves from the northwest-north area in the form of a plateau by heading to the east-southeast area which is a lower plain and towards the Plampang River.
