This study is chosen by the author is to examine the relationship between rainfall amount and settlement in University Technology Petronas (UTP), Tronoh, Perak. The settlement had occurred near student residential college, Blok K which caused a small hole on the road. The incident is said that caused by the heavy rainfall. This study is done to propose an investigation to find out the effect of rainfall to the ground settlement in UTP. This is study also to suggest the method to proceed with the investigation. From the result of this study at the end of this project, hopefully it will be useful to others in solving settlement problem and come out with other solution in order to avoid ground settlement in future. The result shows that the significant variation of soil infiltration exists in the area of studied. Larger range and the lower sill indicates that the soil infiltration are spatially dependent over long distance (large range) and the variability is low (indicates by low sill). Land disturbance and land topographic conditions contribute to the variability of soil infiltration.
