Abstract

Urbanization has changed the actual condition of green area from pervious to impervious area
has resulted in little amount of rainfall infiltrating the soil thus, increasing the volume of
surface runoff. Many ways have been introduced to reduce this effect such as Best
Management Practices (BMPs). The components for this system include constructed wetland,
bioretention, swales, green roof, detention ponds and porous pavement. Therefore, the main
objective of this paper is to evaluate the performance of small scale constructed wetland
under tropical climate. The study for small scale constructed was conducted from April 2012
until November 2012 at Humid Tropic Center Kuala Lumpur and results indicate an increase
in the percentage of removal efficiencies for BOD, COD, TSS, TP, TN are -18.75% to
85.12%, -26.09% to 64.71%, -437% to 96.10%, 8.3% to 86.67%, -35.33% to 75.87%
respectively. The peak attenuation is recorded between 0.009 l/s to 0.051 l/s for the inlet and
between 0.042 l/s to 0.825 l/s for the outlet. Model assessment using MUSIC software was
also conducted and the results indicate a significant percentage of reduction for three water
quality parameters such as Total suspended solid, Total Nitrogen and Total Suspended Solid:
76.5%, 60.4% and 84.2% respectively. The outcome of this study can contribute to the
enhancement of existing MSMA guideline in Malaysia in order to minimize the impact of
urbanization for sustainable development
