ABSTRACT

Korea has experienced serious flood damages caused by severe torrential rain and typhoons for last decade. Moreover, large cities recently have suffered not only rainwater overflow through sewages from paved space in the rainy season but also water shortage from drought and water abuse. The purpose of this study is to develop rainwater management including rainwater utilization facility, storage facility and infiltration facility. Especially, this study aims to improve the regulations and support system related rainwater. The finding and conclusions of this study are as follows. First of all, this study established a new paradigm which puts water utilization, flood control and environment together. Based on this concept, the regulations of rainwater are suggested to revise like that: the provisions early made by water law will expand the scope of application to national land plan law or make a new law for just rainwater management. On the other hand, Rainwater is very useful and environmental resource. However it has not been usually used by people in real life because of inconvenience and economic feasibility. Accordingly, this study suggests several support systems such as incentive allowance like tax and water-supply wage rate reduction and capacity release in building, offer low rate bank- loan and levy on water-supply use as well. Finally, the rainwater management is strongly required to work efficiently in cooperating the above outputs in concrete regulations.
