Soil bio-engineering concept with proposed all the water drainage is built underground which is more nature, ecological and environment concern. The water goes through filtration before goes to the canal to make sure the water in the river is always clean. The overall storm water management is effective and healthy in terms of ecosystem and biodiversity towards a pleasure urban park.
