Title : Kota Damansara Draft Final Report, NAHRIM, 2010
Sypnosis : Due to the rapid development, flooding occurred progressively. This scenario is worsened if improper drainage systems were implemented. The inattentiveness to all the problems occurred will generate the possibility for more severe flooding risk and creates further damages of property and loss of lives. Since the implementation of Urban Stormwater Management Manual of Malaysia (MSMA) in 2001 by Department of Irrigation and Drainage, Malaysia, the Best Management Practices (BMPs) through construction of detention ponds have been encouraged. After 8 years of implementation, there is a need to reconsider the recommendation of constructing detention pond for water quantity control by evaluating performance of the constructed dry detention ponds using computer modelling.
Prepared By : Research Centre for River Management
Report Owner : National Hydraulic Research Institute of Malaysia
Type of Report : Assessment
Objectives : The objectives of the research are: - To develop a numerical model to study the urban stormwater drainage system - To study the sensitivity of each parameters which effects the changes of catchment runoff for model calibration - To research on the performance of the existing detention pond - To predict the performance of the existing detention pond in future development - Capacity Building and build up expertise in urban stomwater drainage engineering
Geographical Location : The case study is dry detention pond at Section 6, Kota Damansara, Selangor built in 1996 with the total catchment area of approximately 428 hectares. The major landuses in Kota Damansara are housing areas and shops which contribute more than 50% of imper
