Mitigation intervention to curb flooding at Kampung Bukit Sebelah, Baling, Kedah / Nurhana Fatehah Abdul Mutalib

Abdul Mutalib, Nurhana Fatehah (2021) Mitigation intervention to curb flooding at Kampung Bukit Sebelah, Baling, Kedah / Nurhana Fatehah Abdul Mutalib. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Flooding in residential areas has produced a slew of issues for the residents. Floods will occur if the drainage system is unable to accept the water capacity when it rains, and the surrounding residential and agricultural regions will be swamped with rainfall. Floods can take several forms, including flash floods, river floods, and coastal floods. The aim of this study is to propose mitigation measures to curb floods in Kampung Bukit Sebelah, Baling. The causes and impacts of floods are also investigated in this final study report. Besides, people's lack of responsibility for cleanliness and civic consciousness, as evidenced by their willingness to toss trash into the drainage system, poor drainage system conditions, and erosion of river walls, which causes the river to become shallow, are among the causes of floods in the study region. As a result of the flood, the residents must deal with certain consequences or issues, such as property damage, pet, and animal fatalities, and so on. In addition, several proposals for improvement have been made based on the study of the difficulties discovered through the survey form, including the construction of leeves along the riverside, the role that should be played by responsible parties such as local authorities and Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) such as imposing fines on residents who throw garbage in the wrong place as well as conducting awareness campaigns to residents, improving, and maintaining drainage and drainage systems to facilitate water drainage during rains.
