ABSTRACT

Police Training School, Kibuli, is in Makindye Division located in a triangle

formed by Mukwano Industry to the north, Prince Badru Kakungulu Road to the

south and Kibuli Road to the east and the stream joining Nakivubo channel

dissecting in the middle plain. Rain induced flooding and water logging has

become a natural part of life in this lower plain of the school and the frequency

of this problem is increasing. Police Training School Kibuli has been

experiencing water logging for the last twenty years where even little rain

causes a serious problem.

This research was intended to examine the extent of evolution of urban

drainage at Police Training School, Kibuli, with regard to finding a solution to the

flooding and ever increasing water logging that have change the environment of

the lower school to become a wetland.

This area is undergoing evolution of drainage believed to have been caused by

the building of Mukwano industry and Mukwano road that did not provide

sufficient drainage, resulting into water logging and flooding of the lower part of

the school whenever it rains. This human interference of the natural flow of water has caused the school ground to act as a basin, as water is held back and eventually resulting into a wetland induced environment. Despite some reclamation by raising some part by addition of soil to reduce water logging, some parts especially the drill shade now appears submerged.
