Penang plans to develop 'drain mapping system' to mitigate flood

GEORGE TOWN (Mar 1): The Penang Government planned to develop a "drain mapping system" to enable the mitigation and detection of flood-prone areas in the island, said state executive councillor Law Choo Kiang.

He said the state government had instructed the public works department, irrigation and drainage department and the Penang Municipal Council to identify hotspots which were frequently struck by flash floods.

Speaking to reporters here on Thursday, Law said, most of the hotspots were located at old housing schemes which were geographically lower. — Bernama
