village and its surrounding areas which covers an area of approximately 160
hectares, is situated in Mukim 3, Seberang Perai
Selatan. This area has been served by two main outlet drains namely Parit
Pertanian and Parit Paya Mahang, which are
maintained by JPS.
The drainage problem encountered by the village is partly
due to the absence of proper network of internal drains
within the village. The flooding problem has worsened with the rapid
increase in development and the change in landuse pattern,
i.e. from a predominantly rural and agricultural/farm setting to that of a
newly developed settlement area.
objectives of the study are listed as follows:
To study the
flooding and drainage problems in the study area.
feasible flood mitigation and drainage enhancement works for immediate
implementation to cater for the study area.
conceptual and preliminary designs of the proposed works including their
layout and typical designs of components and to determine the land
To collect data
and information required for the detailed design of the works.
Four alternatives have been proposed in this study which can be
categorized into two main categories namely, Conventional Drainage System
(Alternatives I and III) and Ecological Drainage System (Alternatives II
and IV). Both structural and non-structural flood mitigation measures have
been proposed to mitigate the flood problems.
