2010 - 2016 Sungai Satu River Rehabilitation Project
Pulau Penang, Malaysia
Sungai Satu is a river located in Batu Ferringhi, Penang which was heavily clogged with litter and pollutants. The river rehabilitation involved a 200 m section of the river. This project was an initiative by Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB) in conjunction with their residential project, By The Sea.
This rehabilitation project aimed to rehabilitate, beautify the riverine environment, and improve the water quality of the river. The project also produced a valuable and enjoyable landscape as well as a highly diverse habitat. Ecological restoration to increase riverine biodiversity is one of the key objectives of this project. Enviro Pro was involved in the design and built as well as the ecological enrichment of the river rehabilitation system with the implementation of bio-engineering technology.
Key design concepts:
Bio-engineered slope – Rock chamber mattresses were placed on the river banks so that it can be used as a slope stabilisation method. The bio-engineered slope can also be re-greened and provides a natural looking appearance.
Cleansing Wetlands – Provides water treatment which improves water quality by means of filtration and phyto-remediation. Beautification of river, making it aesthetically pleasing and providing dense habitat for wildlife
