Best Management Practices (BMPs) have been used worldwide to control urban stormwater runoff.
The objective of this paper is to assess the urban wet detention ponds on quality control for commercial and
residential development in Denai Alam, Selangor, Malaysia. Field monitoring was conducted in this study area.
Eight water samples were collected at 8 different locations from upstream to downstream of catchment area. All
parameters were tested on-site except for TSS which was conducted at laboratory. The value of turbidity
increased due to the occurrence of erosion and the side slope of detention pond. Total suspended solid (TSS)
removal efficiency of Pond B is between 13 - 24%. However, this pond did not perform well in removing total
phosphorus (TP) and ammonia nitrogen (NH -N) due to low concentration of dissolved oxygen. It is indicated 3
that the water samples is classified under Class III of Department of Environment (DOE) Water Quality
Classification which further treatment is required. Maintaining the detention pond could reduce pollutant
loadings to meet targeted requirements of water quality improvement.
