Diagnostic analysis of sluice gate and pipe

Inspection results of the sluice gate and pipes were made into a database.
Based on this, we analyzed the relationship between the internal degradation of concrete and the surface deterioration and reviewed the soundness evaluation.
We made a manual (draft) on "crack repair" of sluice gate and pipes.

Leakage, Steel rust

Missing parts

Overall inspection of dam

The safety of the dam was confirmed from the damage data of the dam main body and peripheral margin, leakage volume, and lift pressure. Then we showed the policy of prolonging the life.
We have summarized "Soundness evaluation of cut-off walls and future maintenance policy (draft)" etc.

Watershed monitoring using erosion control data

We constructed a watershed monitoring system based on sand and hydrological observation data.
And then we investigated the possibility of sediment-related disasters and indices of evaluation of sediment production situation.
We added the items of slope collapse and debris flow to "Guidelines for watershed surveillance on sediment-related disasters (draft)".

Road , Traffic

Study on measures against snow and ice on expressway

On the expressway, we examined the snowplowing system, snow removal method, snow removal route, etc. to secure road traffic early in the event of heavy snowfall and a snow removal manual was prepared.
In addition, we devised a training plan for snow removal activities and conducted training management.

Road closure due to snow

Redistribution of road space, Tourism use

We reviewed the development plan for improving the use environment of bicycles as spatial redistribution of roads accompanying the decrease in traffic volume.
We optimized road signs, examined notation method and design corresponding to internationalization of tourism.

Before and after redeployment of road space

Landscape-conscious road planning and design

We used VR to predict and evaluate the landscape so that local residents can easily imagine it, examined landscape maintenance policy, and designed the road for preserving the historical landscape and form a roads landscape that can be utilized for regional creation.

Disaster prevention

Road management assuming large-scale tsunami

We have compiled the guidelines for creating "Timeline of road management for large-scale tsunamis (disaster action plan)"for road administrator.

Flood disaster resistant community development

We analyzed the inundation range using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite data with the aim of obtaining verification data of flood analysis including internal water about the flood that occurred in the Omonogawa River.

SAR analysis result in flood damage area in Tohoku area

Water transport base examination

We examined the development of a water transportation base in the coastal area of the Tokyo port.
We examined the operation manual (draft) of the base at the time of a disaster, the system and rule of use at normal times in order to supplement the land transport cut in case of a disaster such as earthquake.

History Environment Conservation,Utilization

We examined the environmental improvement plan considering conservation and dissemination of the Ainu culture environment about the dam undergoing maintenance in Hokkaido.
We also examined the utilization policy utilizing historical and cultural assets also at Heijo Palace Historical National Park.

Regional creation and natural regeneration

At the dam water source site, we developed a community-led regional revitalization plan.
We have compiled a regional plan where civil historical assets coexist with the natural environment, and an ecological network plan based on stork about Tone Trough.

Stork

Promotion of inbound

As a sightseeing promotion utilizing the national park, we planned and implemented an experience tour in international parks and surrounding tourism resources for foreign students.
Based on the opinions of participating international students, we examined inbound promotion measures, such as information dissemination to foreign tourists.

"Hand water" experience at the shrine

Environment

Renewable energy support

To promote renewable energy power generation business that contributes to the control of global warming, we implemented survey of suitable sites such as wind power generation, photovoltaic power generation / geothermal power generation, low-frequency impact analysis, environmental assessment, and an accelerated demonstration project on environmental assessment (NEDO).

Natural environment survey

We conduct environmental surveys of nature, scenery, noise, etc. of rivers and roads throughout the country.
That environmental information was utilized as a prerequisite for various infrastructure developments, and also conducted a survey of the planned place of the Tokyo Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games.

Tokyo Olympics, Paralympic Area

Water quality improvement such as dam lake

We have clarified the mechanism of occurrence of water bloom and fungus phenomenon in dam lakes etc. from the identification of causal algae and flow simulation.
We developed an effective monitoring system to suppress the generation of algae and proposed aeration operation method.

Image Analysis of Dam Lake Water Quality

Environmental measurement

Water quality analysis, Accident countermeasure

We have constructed a system to conduct searches and spread prediction of causal substances discharge sites at the occurrence of water quality accidents utilizing the experience of water quality survey in the Tone River, Arakawa, Tama River water system.
We also made it possible to retrieve offices according to chemical substance names and to easily predict flowing time.

Air quality, noise measurement,soil analysis

We conducted a survey of air quality, noise and vibration as part of environmental impact assessment. We conducted a soil analysis for Tsukiji market transfer destination, river and dam dredge of soil reuse and improvement of water quality.

Prediction of noise level

Environmental DNA analysis

We identified the distribution area of the submerged plant water weed such as elodea (cautionary alien plant) in the river using the method of environmental DNA analysis for confirming the validity of environmental DNA analysis.
