Water is one of the most important substances on earth. All plants and animals must have water to survive. If there was no water there would be no life on earth. In Kofr Ra'I town we noticed the great amount of stormwater, we noticed that in this town doesn’t have a proper system that manages it, where heavy rain causes surface runoff, this runoff comes from house roof, street, fields and mountains, and all the runoff water generated from the storms is freely running on the streets, these accumulated run off can cause serious and destructive problems if we don’t have an adequate infrastructure to drain it, so a proper stormwater collection network design is necessary for Kofr Ra'I town, in order to be able to collect and to convey the stormwater from the streets to a good disposal area, and this network will reduce the problem of flooded and destructive. The output from this graduation project was a proper design for stormwater collection network for Kofr Ra'I town that meets the design specifications and allows a good drainage water collection and transport.
