To flatten, embank suitable with constrained height, combine taking advantage of natural terrain, remain river, canal to support drainage and form landscape for urban;

+ For rural resident area and new urban in 5 suburb districts: 04 district are CuChi, HocMon, BinhChanh and NhaBe belong to right shore of river SaiGon – NhaBe, constrained construction height Hxd ≥ 2.00m; solution of planning of height of construction land like as existing city inner area. In CanGio district belong to left shore of river NhaBe – SoaiRap: constrained construction height inside of dyke Hxd ≥ 2.00m, no build new in outside dyke area. In the short time, use system of small embankment and sea dyke to anti flooding. No change environment, raising flow of surface, suitable with planning of irrigation, ensure to accommodate with global climate alterations.

- Planning of rainwater drainage system:

+ Improve, build rainwater drainage system: in the old city inner area, still using system of common drainage for rainwater, waste water; in new constructed area, using system of rainwater drainage, waste drainage separate;

+ For whole existing city inner area, 3 new districts are district 7, district 12, BinhTan district and 4 suburb district are CuChi, HocMon, BinhChanh and NhaBe belong to right shore of river SaiGon – NhaBe: perfect system of rainwater drainage and separate wastewater from system common drain, dredge, enlarge canal combine with local solution to delete flooded point (build temporary dyke, embank road, install unidirectional opening and closing valves, arrange pumping stations…);

+ For 3 new district are district 2, district 9 and ThuDuc district belong to right shore of river SaiGon – NhaBe: arrange system of rainwater drainage separate from network of ditch, drain have enough capacity to drainage under basins with hydrographic condition has constrained, arrange lakes to adjust at the places have high terrain, keep maximum flooded area at the places have low terrain. Attach importance to standard of green plants, grass cover as specified, and reduce the increase of face flow;

+ For CanGio district belong to left shore of river NhaBe – SoaiRap: remain whole system of river, canal and develop more green trees inshore to increase ability of adjustment, don t build big drainage works (just arrange system of drainage for small resident clusters in area);

+ Ensure landmark corridor of canal river protection under provisions on hydrosphere management.
