It looks like they did a nice job with that small stream in Seoul. They should do the same to Klang and Gombak river. Cannot compare with Brizzie/Melb. Those rivers are huge! Maybe Kuching can do something like Brisbane or Paris. The banks along the Siene are lovely!

KL should take a look at San Antonio's riverwalk. very nice - the river about the same size as Klang/Gombak. They built a nice pedestrian path along river and lots of shops along river.

Here are a few I found. Thanks Sze for suggesting Photobucket! Hope the pics appear. As you can see the river in San Antonio is about the same size of Klang River. With a bit of silt entrapment, maybe we can get a nicer color than the teh tarik color we have now. The nice thing about Klang/Gombak is that it is small - so it can be made intimate and pretty like the SA riverwalk.
Another thing to consider - building retention ponds. In Florida where they have to deal with horrific hurricanes, they don't have ugly monsoon drains. They build retention ponds instead - and it looks really pretty! It's like having small lakes everywhere!

A few more riverwalk pics. As you can see they have really maximized their river assets!

Size isn't everything!

See how Christchurch in New Zealand has cared for their tiny little Avon river.

Kampung Abdullah Hukum, I think thats what its called, has so much potential having the river on its border. Think of the possibilities! Plus its sandwich between the LRT station and Midvalley.

The basic relationship for open channels is Q = VA or V = Q/A where V is velocity, Q is Flow (discharge) and A is the cross sectional area of the channel. I’m afraid that you’d be unable to predict any of those parameters by just comparing photographs though.

So even if the Klang and San Antonio rivers ‘seem’ to have the same width, they might have different depths and more importantly different values of Q or flow. All these in return affect its velocity.

The Klang River deserves to be rehabilitated ~ it’s the lifeline of the Klang Valley and the entire country in fact. It is not impossible but it’s going to take time and money. Those settlements along the river, especially messy squatters, are almost the easiest source of water pollution. To add on we have urban runoff, untreated sewage, industrial waste, soil erosion and sedimentation to deal with.

But those pictures are certainly inspiring.

Just back from Kuching and I am really AMAZED what they did to their riverfront! IMO Penang's Gurney drive also kalah in terms of development although Kuching is certainly lacking in the crowd factor

Klang should do the same! But KL can't lah because of the factors Argory had pointed out as well as like what I've said earlier about the flood and stuffs like that

No prob Wei! Really nice to see San Antonio Riverwalk there

Retention ponds is indeed a good solution to this complex problem. In fact the SMART project would consist of two HUGE retention ponds, one in Ampang (behind Gleneagles Hospital) and the other is at the 'souped-up' / enhanced Taman Desa Lake.

Water in four rivers unsafe for use

KUALA LUMPUR: The water in the country’s four most polluted rivers is unsafe for drinking and irrigation.

According to the Department of Environment’s 2004 Malaysian Environment Quality Report, the four rivers were Menggaris in Sabah, Jelutong in Penang, and Buluh and Tukang Batu in Johor.

The report said the cleanest rivers in the country were Petang in Kedah, Penjuring, Teranum and Teras in Pahang, and Liawan, Tandulu, Maliau and Sualong in Sabah.

A hydrology study categorised three sources of river pollution – physical pollution like rubbish, biological pollution like animal waste that gives rise to bacteria such as E. coli and chemical pollution.

According to the report, the department monitored the water quality at 926 stations in 120 rivers throughout last year.

Of the number, 540 recorded water described as clean, 278 as slightly polluted and 108 as polluted. – Bernama

Been to the San Antonio River Walk Texas, that place really beautiful. The Rriver which circling the San Antonio city made the river boat tour much interesting where you can see both nature and city, Along the river, there are restaurants and Malls to spend money with. If I could learn how to upload picture here than I would be happy to put some
The river walk should be build around the mid valley city for future attraction, may be they got to korek some land around mid valley city to achieve this mission. Then , there will be a Mid Valley River Walk, just like Bintang walk, but with River, How cool is that?

open channel flow...the mother of all basic in hydraulics

by the way..the Cheonggyecheon Stream Restoration is great example that KL can follow..but i have this question i need to ask you Argory...since im not an expert in this thing..

since Klang River is a 'natural river' but i noticed some part of the river have different river profiles..as in some part with natural irregular profiles and some part with rectangular or trapezoidal profiles..how will the differences between this profiles thing effect the flow along the river? as in flow .izzit still the same?
thanks in advance.

Abdullah Hukum will be relocate soon once the final phase of the low cost apartment is completed. The one opposite MidValley with its own covered parking lot n colourful exterior scheme
