Groundwater Modelling on a slope failure at Jalan Puteri 9/2, Bandar Puteri Puchong

The site is located at Bandar Puteri 9, Puchong in Selangor.  The site is surrounded by a hilly terrain on the east and south of the area.  There is also a small stream located on the north side of the site, flowing east-west.  The site was excavated for a housing development and was levelled by cut and fill method.  The south part (hill) was cut and the cut material was used to fill up the valley up to a platform level.  During the filling process, the natural drainage pattern was also filled, resulting blockage of the existing river and later may influence the groundwater flow pattern in this area.

Groundwater flowing so fast from these horizontal drains.  Looks like there is underground river below this site
