Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has partnered with the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) to construct a high-capacity groundwater storage tunnel to counter the risk of flash floods in Malaysia. The storage tunnel will hold floodwater before releasing it into the river during low tide. The project is expected to take around three to five years to complete.

DBKL will also undertake a three-month long feasibility study to determine the site and specification of the groundwater storage tunnel. The agency will also be responsible for building flood walls in all high-risk areas.
