ABSTRACT

Levees and drainage culverts are very important facility because they protect the landside from floods. The levees and drainage culverts, however, have not been managed adequately in safety through a law and institutional system in Korea. The purpose of the study is to propose an institutional system that can effectively manage the levees and drainage culverts and to increase safety of them. The current study aims to introduce the levee certification system connected with flood insurance program that is being implemented in the USA. A phased establishment of the system, however, was proposed, since our current technical skill for safety evaluation of the facilities is low and people are unfamiliar with a certification system linked with flood insurance: a safety evaluation project to determine a priority of repair for levees and drainage culverts was proposed in the shot term; and a certification project connected with the flood and storm insurance was suggested in the long term.
