Rain Water Catchment System In Hydraulic Experimental Station

We has developed the rain water resources ya tameike (pond) in the laboratory of water use engineering , Kyoto University. Though we needed much water for the new laboratory of water use engineering at the remote location from Maizuru city, Kyoto Prefecture, the water was not enough to operate hydraulic experiment for 45 students and for researches of water use engineering. After several Years from the construction of new laboratory, though the Maizuru city had constructed new domestic water line with bigger diameter in this area in 1980, the water fee -consumed by hydraulic experiment in the laboratory was very expensive: one'. Then we had introduced the facilities with rain water collection pipe line in underground and a tameike in our experiment station The major items of facilities are as follows. --

  • dimensions of rain water catchment system total area of laboratory 2.5 ha 
  • watershed area of tameike 1.0 ha 
  • rain water collection pipe line in underground side ditch of paved road 150m long an 6 meters width 
  • under ground drain pipe 250m
