river of life
Unique Features

  • The River of Life (ROL) is currently biggest river rehabilitation project by Malaysia government with aim to improve the water quality of Klang River (river that flow through our capital city of Kuala Lumpur).
  • Main objectives of the project are 1) enhancing, rehabilitating and preserving the river and its environment and 2) provide adequate level of flood mitigation protection to the project area, in support of achieving the Greater Kuala Lumpur City status.
  • The Project site covers the 10km stretch of Klang River representing about 40.4 km2 catchment area (from Klang Gates Dam to the confluence of Klang River and Ampang River).
  • Aims to transform the Klang River into a vibrant and livable water front with high economic value. This transformation is divided into three main components: 1) River cleaning 2) River development and 3) River master planning and beautification.
  • The goal is to bring the river from its current Class III – Class V water quality (not suitable for body-contact) to Class IIb (suitable for body-contact recreational usage) by year 2020.

4. NAHRIM HYDRAULIC LAB
      Wednesday 16th August 2016 (Time: 1pm-5pm)
      Price: FOC
      Max: 100pax


nahrim lab
Unique Features

  • Hydraulic and Instrumentation Laboratory of NAHRIM was established to conduct basic and applied research and development (R&D) in physical modelling in various field including studies on dam, rivers, coastal and offshore.
  • The Hydraulic Laboratory of NAHRIM has a total area of 12,000 square meters, equipped with various facilities for research in physical modelling.
  • The facilities consist of
    1. Coastal and estuarine facility: Study on the wave effect to the coastal area, sediment transport and changes, and built structure at the coastal areas.
    2. Port and harbour facility: Physical model studies on coastal structures such as breakwaters, revetments, artificial reefs, groyne, wave/structure interactions, beach profile response as well as complex design layouts such as wave agitation in harbours and marinas, problems at estuaries such as sedimentations/erosions.
    3. Tidal/River facility: To study flood event that may occur within the river catchments and flood mitigation scheme.
    4. Tilting flume: Generate and test various frequencies and pattern of wave in small quantity and various continuous water discharge and flow pattern.

5. KWASA DAMANSARA
      Wednesday 16th August 2016 (Time: 1pm-5pm)
      Price: 15USD for international, RM55 for local
      Max: 100pax


kwasa

  Unique Features

  • The proposed Kwasa Damansara new township is a master development project to be carried out on approximately 2332 acres (943 hectares) of land in Petaling District. This project site is planned to become a showpiece of the new concept of drainage system.
  • Emphasis has been stressed on the necessity of the use of MSMA in all drainage design and implementation in order to protect the environment of the surrounding areas. As a master developer the objective of developing and delivering a town-city like no other to Malaysians, Kwasa Land Sdn. Bhd. will undertake the development project in collaboration with many notable local developers so as to produce high quality state of the art township.
  • The key design objective for the proposed development is to create a new focal point that reflects the township of a 21st Century; one that is Green, Connected and has a sense of Place Making.
  • In the effort to achieving a sustainable township that is green holistically, it is important to protect the sites’ ecology and develop a sustainable stormwater master plan that shall contribute towards environmental quality, which includes protection and conservation of the existing river system.
  • Adopting the concepts of integration, control-at-source and sustainability, BIOECODS paved the way for a promising development in drainage design in Malaysia that fulfils the MSMA criteria.
  • Through innovation in design, the designers introduced the ecological swale, a dual layer conveyance system that minimize drainage footprint but provide additional water quantity and quality treatment.
  • Other components such as bio-engineered channel, bio-retention, dry ponds, OSD, wet ponds and wetlands are further evidences of the integration of stormwater facilities into surrounding landscape, adding significant values to otherwise worthless open spaces.
  • The project also overturned the stigma of increased cost due to innovative drainage.

6. RAINWATER HARVESTING SYSTEM (RWHS) AT PAYA INDAH WETLAND
      Wednesday 16th August 2016 (Time: 1pm-5pm)
      Price: 20USD for international, RM75 for local
      Max: 100pax


kwasa
  Unique Features

  • NAHRIM has implemented Rainwater Harvesting System (RWHS) in Paya Indah Wetland (PIW) using rainwater for the water playground by putting the concept of water balance into practice in an effort to utilise excess rainwater resources more efficiently.

     

  • The installation of RWHS in PIW aims to prepare masterplan for the management of rainwater resources in urban areas as an alternative water source for water features to reduce floods from excess runoff

     

  • NAHRIM has been commissioned to conduct a small-scale pilot research project in Paya Indah Wetlands (PIW) in the Focus Group Meeting held in 2013. This study aims to optimize Rainwater Harvesting System (RWHS) for water features to harness the benefit of excess rainwater more efficiently.

     

  • A suitable location has been identified for this project, in the area near Tasik Rusiga, which is able to utilize excess runoff from the car park as a catchment area for rainwater, before being channeled into underground water storage tank with the capacity of 250 m3. This water will then be channeled to another similar underground water storage tank after going through the Membrane Water Treatment System. The processed water will be reused as the source for the water features.

     

  • Benefits from this study include reducing dependence on treated water, overcoming flash flood problems, reducing pollution into the lakes, maintaining ecosystems and environmental sustainability and promoting recreational activities in PIW. The outcome from this study will also be used in the Masterplan for City Level Rainwater Resources Management especially in the areas that experience flash floods. This study is a pilot project to prepare rainwater resources management plan for urban areas.
