Based on the new idea of harmony for human with water, a macro strategy for the flood-control and for the lake storage during low water standing period in Dongting Lake watershed and the middle reach of Yangtze River is suggested in the paper under normal operations of the Three Gorges Reservoir. The strategy includes three components that the first region must maintain suitable water level through low construction projects to keep original scene for the natural lake and wetland in low water standing period, the followed is the construction flood storage when water level over the limitation level of the bank, the last one is the planning extended flood storage areas to regulate extreme floods like 1954, 1935 and 1931, as well as 1870. The strategy not only meets the sustainable development of human society, but can also protect the nature. It provides a new approach to basically moderating or effective solve various problems among human, water and land in the Dongting Lake area.
