Abstract

Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD)
was used as intergrated approach to manage urban
stormwater which currently has become a public
concern in Malaysia. As a part of WSUD, rain
gardens are recommended technology for new
stormwater management in Malaysia. There is no
performance data for this system, specifically at the
field scale in Malaysia. Rain gardens are a part of
Water Sensitive Urban Drainage (WSUD) in
approach to urban planning and design that
integrates the management of the total water cycle
into the urban development process introduced by
Government of South Australia. Previous studies
shows that rain gardens have been effective in
retaining large volumes of runoff and consistently
reduced the number of certain pollutants. This
article will review some of the guidelines,
laboratory studies and filed monitoring of rain
gardens that shown great potential for water
quantity and quality control improvement. Thus,
this that can possibly contribute to the development
and implementation of rain gardens in Malaysia
under tropical climate. The outcome of the study
hopefully can be use to higlight the potential of rain
gardens in order to achieve the sustainable urban
development in Malaysia.
