Abstract

Area of Parit Raja including campus of UTHM is facing flood and water shortage every year due to topographically is flat and most of the top layer of soil is occupied by clay. Based on this condition, this study is aimed to reduce the excess storm-water runoff by flowing the surface water into the ground (aquifer) through a well (perforated pipe), so that the decreasing of surface water will be able to contribute in overcoming the flood problem and the second expectation from the mechanism is to store water in the aquifer with hope that the potential of groundwater will increase.
