Development of well-balanced urban water use systems adapted for climate change

Research Project Outline

Reexamination of the use of ubiquitous water resources such as rain water, ground water, and reclaimed water is required to cope with the further localized water resources due to climate change. We develop novel evaluation approaches for risk and stability of water quality and devise methods for water use design by considering environmental cost evaluation and preferences of various users. In order to create innovative strategies for urban water use under climate change conditions, comprehensive predictions is carried out to evaluate changes in weather and hydrological conditions in watersheds resulting in dynamic variations of water quantity and quality. Finally, we propose well-balanced urban water use systems in which the equilibrium between water supply and demand is maintained.
