Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) is a member of National Disaster
Committee Malaysia and is responsible for providing
flood forecasting and warning
service to the public including on-line rainfall and river levels information.
This webpage is generated from the study of the development of debris and mudflow
prediction and warning system (DMFWS) based on existing rainfall data in
Cameron Highlands following the guidelines and methodology provided during the
Typhoon Committee Hydrology Component Workshop.
The main objectives of the DMFWS is
to provide advance warning to the public and relevant agencies for disaster relief on
the possibility of occurrence of an impending landslide or mudflow in high-risk and
sensitive areas, like cut shapes of highway and recreation areas.
The DMFWS is able to alert the appropriate agencies for disaster relief.
This is an opportunity for DID to expand it's scope of warning in the possibility
of debris movement. A successful model hopefully lead DID as one of local
Government Agency that can provide Operational Debris Flow Warning System in Malaysia.
