Lack of integrated catchment management is the key factor leading to the deterioration of Sg. Maong water quality. This is worsening with the rapid develeopment in the catchment. In this study, the framework of an integrated catchment plan is developed. Data were collected through literature search, field observation, and interviews. Major catchment issues identified were water quality and flooding. It is proposed that an effective integrated catchment management, Sg. Maong Catchment Committee (SMCC) be set up where relevant government agencies are involved. Management strategies highlighted were the management of institutional organization and environmental legislation, training programs, improvement of the existing catchment management plan, public awareness program and water quality monitoring program.
