Such drainage channels in the State of Johor, especially located in rural area are facing sedimentation seriously due to unlined channel. A field research at Parit Botak Channel has been carried out to study the sediment load and its transport during tides effect. Samples were made along the channel from upstream up to estuary yielding that most of soils are marine clay (BS 1201: Part 2:1973), flow of channel varies from 9.7 to 89.91 m3/s, correlation between turbidity and suspended sediment R2 is 90%, and correlation between flow rate and sediment transport R2 is bigger than 92%.
