Abstract

Malaysia has taken an integrated approach to manage storm water that is
increasingly becoming a problem in big cities. Rain gardens are recommended as green
technology for a new storm water management in Malaysia. Malaysian. The approach to urban
planning and design that integrates the total water cycle management into the development
process areas. Rain gardens have been effective in maintaining a large amount of runoff and
consistently reduce the number of certain pollutants. This paper will examine some of
guidelines, laboratory studies and field monitoring that shows great potential and benefit of
rain garden. The preliminary results for rain garden performance were reported in this paper.
The findings from this research will open avenues for researchers to advance the knowledge in
rain garden systems to achieve the sustainable development in Malaysia.
