Project Summary:

The Bio-Ecological Drainage System (BIOECODS) is a pilot project that meets the requirement of Urban Storm Water Management Manual for Malaysia (MSMA). BIOECODS is designed for both water quantity and quality controls. BIOECODS was constructed at Engineering Campus, University Science Malaysia, Nibong Tebal, Pulau Pinang and completed in December 2002. BIOECODS forms an alternative to storm water management practice and is designed as an environmentally-friendly system based on “Control-at-Source” concepts. The objectives of this pilot project are:

 

The components of BIOECODS systems are ecological grassed swales, dry ponds and an ecological pond consisting of wetpond, detention pond, wetland, wading river and recreational pond. Three types of ecological swales were constructed namely Type A, Type B and Type C depending on the number of modules available underneath the swale. Stormwater runoff is conveyed by ecological swales and dry ponds to wet pond, detention pond and finally wetland for further treatment. The end product is expected to improve the aesthetic values of the USM Engineering Campus with the existence of the “Crystal Clear Blue Water Lake” at the downstream end of the system.
