District of Simpang Renggam which was formerly a remote place has now changed into a developed area. Unfortunately, this change has also made the occurrence of floods at some places in the district, especially at Taman Harmoni that is facing inundation caused even by a single storm event. A study has been carried out to determine the effectiveness of the existing and proposed drainage system in order to overcome the amount of surface runoff due to urbanization activities by applying MASMA and SMADA software. The results show the existing drainage system would not be able to intercept the capacities of surface runoff for 10 years return period. The channel modification only reduces the flood area until 2010. Huge flood event will occur in year 2015 when impermeable surfaces reach to 70% and without any further improvement on drainage system.
