CONTENTS

1. Background 
* Lack of trust in tap water and continuous flow of complaints 
- Trust in tap water undermined by water volume, quality, and pressure issues caused by deteriorated waterworks pipe networks and inadequate supply system 
* Lack of scientific management for tap water supply process 
- Water supply pipe network and previous waterworks pipe network improvement projects mostly focused on repairing leaking pipes or replacing pipes that are past their service life: this type of projects is not capable of giving a systemic solution of structural issues 
- Water systems, blocks, and pipe network systems are mixed because of the unplanned expansion of water transportation pipes, distribution pipes, and water supply pipes, which poses problems with effective maintenance. 
* Foster waterworks businesses into a green growth industry with low energy consumption 
- Leakage reduction through water flow rate improvement and other projects is expected to drastically reduce the energy required for additional supply and production of tap water 
a. Around KRW 519 billion is lost each year (as of 2008) because of the leakage caused by the deteriorated water pipes (0.7 billion tons). 
b. Leakage reduction will decrease CO2 emission by 234,000 tons per year. 

2. Purpose 
* Build an advanced water network management system through the scientific repair of leaking pipes based on water pipe network diagnosis and maintenance using IT technologies. 
- Ensure the effectiveness of pipe network repairs by performing diagnosis before improvement. 
- Build an optimal pipe network management system through block systems and maintenance systems. 
- Maintain the functions of pipe networks and water flow rate through preemptive and preventive maintenance.
