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:

Development Allocation Received In First Rolling Plan (RMK11)

In 2016, under the Rebuilding & Upgrading of Irrigation And Drainage Structures, the MADA has built and completed a control structure to replace Tandop Tailed Alor Melaka, Region II, MADA. These ceilings are expected to be completed and will be operational by mid-2017.

For the Water Treatment Flood Upgrade Project, the MADA has carried out three (3) scopes of work namely increasing the drainage capacity, building a small water control structure and strengthening the slope downstream of the main structure. Among the work done is to deepen and elevate the Sg. Gial / Sg. Kangar is expected to be completed by 2017, constructing and completing the structure to stabilize the downstream slope of the Kuala Sanglang Lama Tilted Tiling with completed steel sheeting in November 2016 and then work on building and upgrading small control structures in each region.
