A case study was conducted at the development area in Batu Gajah, Perak Darul Ridzuan, (Taman Batu Gajah and Kg. Tersusun Sentang). This particular research covers analytical approaches to the issue of flash flood recurrence at the problem area for the past 5 years with data collected from site investigation, surveys with the local residents and interviews with the responsible authorities. Relevant data was analyzed and the existing drain capacity and peak flow of 0.96 m3 /s and l.l4 m3/s respectively were obtained. The study covers a catchment area of 3.7 hectares. The way of the existing drainage design was implemented and constructed could be traced back to the early planning stage of the development in Batu Gajah area namely during early 1970's. The study found that there is a discrepancy between the actual performance and the intended capacity of the drainage system. Application of On-Site Detention storage (OSD) was analyzed for possible alternative to mitigate the flood problem. The OSD was found to be able to reduce the peak flow to 0.15 m3 /s and alleviate the problem.
