Urbanization has led to problems in urban storm water management such as flash flood. A conventional drainage system has been designed to mitigate flash flood by transporting storm water runoff out of the catchments into river as fast as possible (rapid disposal). This conventional drainage system is based on manual “Planning and Design Procedure by Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID)” in 1975. However this conventional system has led to the occurrence of flash flood at the downstream of the catchments. Therefore, a new manual has been introduced by DID Malaysia. This new manual is known as “Storm Water Management Manual (MSMA)” in 2001. “Best Management Practices (BMPs)” or control at source concept has been applied in this new manual to achieve zero development impact contribution. This new drainage has been implemented by Universiti Sains Malaysia in collaboration with DID. The site of study is located in USM Engineering Campus Seberang Perai Selatan District, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia. In order to verify the effectiveness of this new drainage system, simulation of pipe system (rapid disposal) and BIOECODS system (control at source) has been carried out as a comparison.
