The conventional drainage system increases the storm water runoff and produced larger flow discharge at downstream and causing flash flood. This study shows the function and the effectiveness of the BIOECODS that use infiltration engineering, retaining, treatment, and reducing the flow in order to attenuate the peak flow as suggested in Manual Saliran Mesra Alam (MSMA). In other words, this new method is a new development that is very effective in storm water management using ‘control at source’ method. This study “Peak Attenuation Using Dry Pond” has been carried out to determine the effectiveness of dry pond, one of BIOECODS’s components. Dry pond is calculated in terms of its capability to retain and drain the storm water. From this study it shows that the dry pond perform very well in retaining storm water runoff before draining into the storm water systems, therefore avoiding the occurrence of inundation at the downstream end. The emptying time for Dry Pond C and Dry Pond G is less than 24 hours. The infiltration and sieve analysis also performed to show the effectiveness of dry pond to infiltrate slowly to attenuate the peak flow at downstream. Lastly, hopefully this study may achieve its objectives.
