This paper is intended to investigate the potential of dry detention pond in long-established urban settlements in Kuching City. Such pond is inserted to a typical terrace housing estate by means of computer modelling using SWMM software. The initial outputs of model are to identify occurrence of positive altered runoff patterns. Such modelling results provide a tool quantitatively to measure the probable use of the proposed measures to improve the existing urban drainage system.
