Abstract

The dam related disaster caused thousands of people's lives and billions of property damages in the world. In Malaysia, one case study of dam failure in Sungai Perak may result in the death of more than 10,000 and RM 1.25 Billion of property damages. The loss of life and property damages is mostly happened due to the lack of timely release of the water. In this research, we proposed a pre-release strategy for all TNB dams in Sg Perak Hydroelectric scheme. The pre-release of the reservoir water will prevent the floods in the nearby area of the dams. Two pilot case study is being shown and proved that applying pre-release strategy ensure the safety of the dams.
