Sewerage system is one of the most important lifeline systems for an urban society. Functional suspension of sewerage system by seimic damages influences the great impact to the citizen’s daily life, business continuity of many companies, public health and so on. For example, in 2004 Mid Niigata Prefecture Earthquake, many people could not use water supply system after restoration during the functional suspension of sewerage system. So, it is very important that the countermeasure against the seismic damages to decrease the effect of the functional suspension of sewerage system is made in advance.
