Abstract

The urbanization has increased the construction of impervious area and significantly altered the
hydrology and hydraulic characteristics of catchments. MSMA SME had been introduced as a method
to control stormwater runoff from the aspect of quantity and quality to achieve zero development. The
components comprises of constructed wetland, bio-retention, grass swale, rain water harvesting, green
roof, porous pavement and greywater reuse system. However, this paper is only focusing on
constructed wetland and the main objective of this study is to investigate the performance for removal
efficiency of stormwater that passed through the constructed wetland. Water quality data had been
collected at the inlet and the outlet point of constructed wetland during rainfall events from 24th April
2012 until 30th May 2012. The parameters measured were Turbidity, Total Suspended Solid, Biological
Oxygen Demand and Chemical Oxygen Demand. However, other parameters such as temperature,
heavy metals, dissolved oxygen, Total Nitrogen, Total Phosphorus and Total Coliform were also
measured and analysis. The sampling and testing procedures conducted were in accordance with the
Standard Method for Examination of Water and Wastewater 20th Edition. The range for removal
efficiency for turbidity was 9.76% to 66%, TSS was 12.5% to 45%, BOD was 4.55% to 36.67% and
COD was 9.1% to 88%. Generally, the results obtained show that the constructed wetland is capable to
improve stormwater quality before discharging to the nearest water ways. The findings can be used
significantly to enhance the knowledge in constructed wetland under tropical climate where it can
serve as effective and integrated solutions for managing urban runoff using control at source approach.
