Most irrigation and drainage infrastructure of MADA was built 30 to 50 years ago. These structures have disappeared due to intensive use and natural erosion factors. There are some of these older structures that need to be replaced with new ones. The lack of maintenance provision has limited the quality and maintenance level of maintenance. Additionally, the function and use of these structures need to be improved and modified to meet current requirements. Repair work should be carried out as soon as possible to avoid further damage and catastrophic events. In 2016, MADA has acquired two (2) sources of allocation to carry out development projects namely:

i. The First Rolling Plan (RP1) allocation under the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP)
In 2016, a total of RM7.1 million has been approved to undertake development projects under the RM1 11th RP1. The list of projects and the breakdown of the provisions are as follows:
