Flash flood: DBKL probes project site as possible culprit

October 31, 2017


Mayor says clogged drains at the site could have been the cause of yesterday’s massive flooding at the Federal Highway.

KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) is investigating a development project believed to be the main cause of the flash flood at the Federal Highway, here, yesterday.

Motorists were caught in a 5km traffic snarl on the highway linking Kuala Lumpur to Shah Alam after three of its four lanes were flooded at about 3pm following two hours of heavy rain.

Kuala Lumpur Mayor Mhd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz said based on observations, the source of the flash floods at the highway was due to clogged drains at a project site nearby.

“If it is true that the development project had caused the flash floods, we will issue a stop work order to the developer until they build a temporary detention pond and a cut-off drain,” he said today.

The prime minister has instructed to launch it by Aug 31, if possible, but it seems that it may be delayed because the conditions do not permit. But it’s almost done, with just a few more things that need to be sorted out.

“For the whole river, it (will be completed) in 2018. There needs to be widening and dredging of the river to increase its capacity, because it is shallow and sedimentation is causing problems,” Wan Junaidi said in Kuala Lumpur…
