Water quality management are proposed to prevent, control or treat environmental problems related to quality of water, are broad and complex issues. In UTHM campus area, the water quality impacts or water quality control over time have not been studied in detail. Due to these complex issues, a well developed urbanization areas such as UTHM must have a well monitoring of quality assessment. In this research, a water quality monitoring has been carried out to study how effective an On-Site Detention pond that was developed in UTHM campus area in controlling water contamination. A few important of water quality parameter will be monitor by using three method of collecting data's by using on-site water quality monitoring equipment including self-monitoring equipment and portable water quality equipment. This equipments can analyzed more than five water quality parameters in a time and can be self reading at site over time. A laboratory research also has been carried out to get the water quality index to classify all the important parameters of water quality according to water quality standards in Malaysia.
