Abstract

One of the major problems facing the Department of Environment nowadays is the pollution of rivers with suspended solid coming from non-point source pollution in urban areas. This project is related to the improvement of water quality inside the river by applying the bioretention before the runoff from construction areas enters the river. It will involve the quality modeling by using specific software that was developed in Australia called the Model of Urban Stormwater Improvement Conceptualization (MUSIC) in order to predict the percentage removal ofTSS (Total Suspended Solid), TN (Total Nitrogen) and TP (Total Phosphorus). The other methods involved in this project which are data gathering, construct the physical model ofbioretention, laboratory and data analysis. From the predicted and laboratory analysis, bioretention can removes about 80-90% of TN, 80-85% ofTSS, and 70%-83% ofTP. The laboratory model was tested under Malaysia condition using soil in Seri Iskandar area The testing was based on column studies representing bioretention to improve the water quality of a stream in UTP campus. The predicted model represents the water quality of Sungai Pi nang in Penang. The performance of the laboratory model was comparable to the predicted model but the performance of laboratory model was slightly lower probably due to acclimatization period. The bioretention should be acclimatizing at least two months in order to achieve the good results.
