Kolej Universiti Kejuruteraan & Teknologi Malaysia (KUKTEM) is located in Pahang Darnl Makmur. Infiltration can be defme as the rate of water soaking into the soil and the unit used to calculate the infiltration rate is mm/hour. The calculation of the infiltration rate entering the soil, a double-ring infiltrometer is used for the experiment. Three locations have been selected as the study area which is nearby the laboratory of Civil and Environmental Faculty, in front of KUKTEM's mosque and KUKTEM's football field. For each location, three points have been chosen based on the distance of the point with distance between 5m-IOm as an experimental point. After performing the experiment, soil samples have been gathered and analyzed in the laboratory using the sieve analysis experiment. The calculation that is using in this experiment is Horton's Equation. The analysis indicated that the soil for the three selected areas is sandy soil. The infiltration rate at KUKTEM's football field is lower compared to the other two selected areas.
