In recent years, due to climate change, the number of large typhoons and localized heavy rainfall events has increased in Japan. It is feared that this will lead to more serious water-related hazards. Water-related disasters are also occurring in urban areas. Due to population growth and residential development, the water retention function of forests and soils of fields has been lost. As a result, there are larger amounts of rainwater flowing into drainage systems. As the risk of water disasters increases in the future, drainage systems must be be more reliable and flexible than ever before.

There are 20 first-class rivers in the Kyushu region. Many rivers, including tributaries and waterways, support the lives of people and industries in the region. However, when a water disaster occurs, the impact on the community, such as flooding from overflowing rivers as well as underground flooding, is significant.

To quickly restore safe and normal life to disaster-affected areas, drainage pump trucks are equipped with pumps that can release water even at low water levels to speed up the recovery process.
