As the extreme climate change has seriously challenged urban capacity to withstand flood, the technical means are not enough to support the current situation. As a result, DWRT integrates the rainfall data of neighboring cities and develops a system which provides the disaster prevention information through a dashboard and displays the information by map overlay. Through the System, more than 250 water information sensors are able to share the data just in time, the efficiency of disaster warning and preparation has been greatly increased.

Taoyuan City Intelligent water resources application
As the total amount of groundwater availability is difficult to measure visually, it is hard for managers to monitor the status of groundwater. By integrating water level and pumping volume monitoring information through the intelligent platform, managers can predict the future groundwater situation in their jurisdictions, and with the aid of data visualization tools, managers can make dynamic adjustments to groundwater resources such as reducing or stopping pumping.
In terms of sewer management, Taoyuan City develop sewer intelligent monitoring system with Internet of things (IoT) technologies.The system can help us to understand sewer system real-time operation in metropolitan disaster prevention and sewer maintenance by BIG DATA analysis.It also integrates more than 15,200 sewer manhole pipelines through the "Taoyuan City Sewer Cloud Smart Management System" to effectively maintain and manage to ensure service standards; the "Taoyuan City 3D GIS System" visualization the pipelines and import conflict analysis to find errors immediately and avoid mis-digging.
