This study was conducted to develop and evaluate the prediction accuracy and effectiveness of “ICT operation support system for urban flood control facilities,” which is installed in Eba catchment area in Hiroshima city, Japan. This system consists of real-time facilities monitoring technology, rainfall data from eXtended RAdar Information Network (XRAIN), and Real-time flood prediction technology. High prediction accuracy is crucial for effective control facility management using ICT operation support system. In this study, ICT operation support system was installed for effective operation of stormwater pump. The prediction accuracy and effectiveness of this system were evaluated based on the past rainfall record from XRAIN. The system takes only three minutes to distribute the urban flood prediction information, and it has been operated stably during the operation. Flood risk reduction effect can be better expected in case of central concentrated rainfall pattern.
