ABSTRACT

Incheon city is located in the Han River estuary region, which is far away from the water source. As a result, drinking water is an important issue that had to be dealt with. This can be solved by installing pipelines spanning of ten of kilometers connecting the city and the water source. In this study, a trend analysis on water and water policy for both in Korea and abroad will be conducted, where Incheon will be selected as the pilot city to determine which direction the water policy in terms of development as well as the introduction of the Smart Water Grid Technology policy will be taken. In addition, this paper also examine other aspects like the sewage, gray water as well as storm water management, marine environment and sea water desalination in different scenarios settings where several development directions will be suggested. It is noteworthy to point out that this study shows the importance roles of an overarching policy, that encompasses all the different policies objectives, and the water conservation policy in the development of water policy framework. As for long-term development direction for river management, emphasis should be place on information management as well as the installation and management of the technologies.
