Rapid urbanization has many negative effects on environment such as deterioration of
water quality contributed by pollution. In terms of stormwater management, even with
the introduction of Manual Saliran Mesra Alam (MSMA) in 2000 (Urban Stormwater
Management Manual for Malaysia), numerous new technologies have yet to be examined
in detail, especially the relationship between water quantity and quality.
Implementation is based on the restoration and optimization of the ecosystem. In this
study, it has been reviewed and introduced the MSMA software in regard to water quality
and discharge analysis for the future study. MSMA SME Design Aid and Database
System knowledge base consists of a compilation of information and data relevant to
stormwater treatment including algorithm for components, available design standard,
technical guidelines, components design, supplier contact information, and images of
each components and drawings. MSMA SME Design Aid and Database System
framework consists of four main modules: user requirement input, analysis and design
phase, prototype phase and user testing. There are 28 main components which have
important role for visualization of any given catchment such as rainfall data, green roof,
bioretention, constructed wetland, porous pavement, rainwater harvesting system, grey
water reuse system and checking tools items. Currently, the 4 key components, such as
bioretention system, water quality volume, lined drain design and bridge afflux
estimator, have been developed in this study. MSMA SME Design Aid and Database
System is able to assist engineers and developers in terms of management and
improvement of water quantity and quality entering urban rivers from urban regions. This system is also helpful when an expertlevel
judgment is needed repetitively for a
large amount of cases, like in the planning of stormwater BMPs systems for an entire city
