Ulsan Metropolitan City speeds up the construction project of the ‘ICT-based Flood Disaster Management System’
The Ministry of the Interior and Safety makes decision to issue KRW 500 million as an emergency special subsidy tax
Ulsan will complete the construction by May 2018 with an investment total of KRW 1.5 billion and commences full operation


Ulsan received KRW 500 million from the Ministry of the Interior and Safety as a ‘2017 emergency special subsidy tax’ for the project of constructing the ‘ICT-based Flood Disaster Management System’ which is being operated under an agreement with K-water made in June 2016.
Ulsan suffered from embankment loss and damage to housing and vehicles due to flooding caused by the overflow of national and local rivers during Typhoon 'Chaba' in 2016.
The construction project of the ‘ICT-based Flood Disaster Management System' is to secure the ‘Golden Time’ for citizens who live in areas prone to flooding to evacuate safely by analyzing and monitoring predicted information on upper stream areas.
K-water which is equipped with expertise in water resources will execute the project and will construct the Ulsan Disaster Safety Situation Room and the Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters.
The project will be completed by May 2018 by investing a total of KRW 1.5 billion for the cost of the project.
Among the project of constructing the ‘ICT-based Flood Disaster Management System,’ the water-level observatory and CCTV are considered disaster prediction and warning facilities, thus the installation of the facilities can get support from the emergency special subsidy tax.
Accordingly, the Mayor of Ulsan Kim Gi-hyeon made a request for special assistance to the Minister of the Interior and Safety Kim Boo-kyum when he visited the Minister in October, and a decision to provide the assistance was made.
Owing to the acquisition of a special subsidy tax as government expenditure, the project of the ICT-based Flood Disaster Management System which is being operated for the first time in a metropolitan city can quickly proceed.
