Of the Chikugo RiverWatershedIs mainly located at the northern foot of Mt. Aso Sonomoto in the upper reaches, and the main stream of the Chikugo River is located from the Senomoto Plateau.Kokonoe MountainThe source is the Kusu River.The rain that falls at the northern foot of Mt. Aso Sotowa generally joins the Chikugo River or Kusu River.

The Tsukushi Plain is especially Kurume CityYame cityIn, the sediments transported from the upper reaches of the Chikugo River were deposited and formed an alluvial plain.Yabe RiverSediment transported from the upstream also contributes to the formation of the Tsukushi Plain.

For this reason, the sediment carried by the Chikugo and Yabe rivers accumulates on each other and is a vast part of the Yame and Yanagawa plains, which are part of the Tsukushi plain.deltaThe area around Yame City, which forms a zone and exists in the middle, is gentle.hillsIt is a watershed between the Chikugo River system and the Yabe River system.Hirokawa flowing through the northern part of Yame cityHanamune RiverJoins the Chikugo River, but a small river in the southern part of Yame City joins the Yabe River.

Changes in name

The name Chikugo River is nowWater systemFirst nameas well as the Water systemMain streamIt is used as the name of, but it was previously called by various river names depending on the time.Also still upstreamOita-KumamotoIt is commonly called by a common name in the basin.

Changes with the times

Chikugo River depends on the timesChitose River / Chitose River(Chitosegawa),Overnight river(Ichiyagawa),Chikugo RiverIt was also called (Chikumagawa).

The name Chikugo River was finally unified as the mainstream name1636(Kanei13 years)[1].

Found in the oldest literatureChitose River / Chitose RiverIn Although,Kamakura PeriodCompiled toOgi WakashoListed in the 24thWakaThe name is written inEdo Period"Utamakura Nayori" and "Yonezawa Domain"Kurume Domain) Poetry selection ”was also written in poetry.

文明-TempoIt is said that "Chitosegawa is an ancient name" is written in "Chikuzen Zokudoki Fudoki" written by the year, and it was established as another name among local residents even after the Chikugo River was decided to be the official name. There is.

Overnight riveraboutMuromachi PeriodThe name is first seen in the Chikugo River development history, which will be described later.洪水It is said to be based on the old tradition that "the abundant land turns into a wasteland overnight."Chikugo RiverAbout in the early Edo periodChikuzen countryとChikugoIt is said that it was derived from the fact that it was flowing in the middle of.

The name Chikugo River became the official name, but this is the material of the Kurume Domain.U.S. chronology"When"Ishihara family diaryThe contents are described in.

In other words, in 1636, the Edo Shogunate ordered the river to be unified to the Chikugo River.Old ageGot down through.HoweverShimabara's turbulenceIs related not only to the Kurume DomainFukuoka domain,Saga Domain,Yanagawa DomainHowever, it was temporarily put on hold because the order to go out was given.

After suppressing the turbulence1638It is written that in (Kanei 15), the bosses, Matsudaira Wakasa Mamoru and Ando Tajima Mamoru, who received the order of the old man again, notified Arima Shusui, the chief retainer of the Kurume Domain, to use the name "Chikugo River". ..

During this time, there is a tradition about the circumstances.That is the Fukuoka domainElderWhen the Kurume feudal lord was assessing the name of the river while he was in attendance, the elder asked the Fukuoka feudal lord, "What should the name of this river be?" When asked suddenly, he slipped over the place where he answered "Chikugo River" and answered "That Chikugo River ...", and the old man decided to "decide on the Chikugo River". ..

From the above circumstances, in 1636 by the order of the Edo ShogunateChikugo RiverIt was officially decided after the end of the Shimabara Rebellion.However, this name is Chikuzen, Chikugo,HizenIt is the name given to the river that flows through the border of the three countries.UpstreamIsBungoWas not called within.

Chikugo River Development History

Chikugo River is as mentioned above1636Until the river name became the current "Chikugo River"Chitose River"Or"Chikugo RiverWas called, but "Overnight riverWas also called.

The meaning is that the basin will be devastated overnight due to the flood.Chikugo OfrentIs recorded as exempted for one year806The modern river maintenance began in earnest from the flood in1889(MeijiBy the time of the flood in 22), 183 major floods had occurred.This is the geology of the main and tributary water sourcesAndesiteThe geology of volcanic rocks has low permeability, and the upstream part has a steep slope, while the downstream part has a gentle slope and the downstream part is easily flooded.

However, the basin is also a fertile breadbasket, and hydraulic control and water utilization in the basin have been carried out continuously since ancient times.

Pioneering and hydraulic control under the feudal government

The reason why people's activities began to be cultivated in the Chikugo River basinJomon PeriodTerminal400 BCIt is estimated to be around.At that time, most of the Tsukushi Plain was the sea, and the mouth of the Chikugo River was also at that time.Back shaking mountainsIt is said that it was biased toward the south.

Large scale hereRing moatIsYoshinogari archeological siteWas born, and since thenYayoi PeriodMid-term3st centuryIt prospered for about 700 years.Welcome after thatcoastlineGradually moved to the southwest, and the Tsukushi Plain, an alluvial plain, was gradually formed in combination with the transportation of sediment from the main and tributaries of the Chikugo River.Renewal of DahuaでBantianWhen is enforcedAriake Sea OfReclamationHas started and is nowYanagawaからSaga PlainIn the lower reaches of the Chikugo RiverRyori systemOrderly byCreekCame to be drawn,Konden Einen Shizai LawThe private ownership of the land was recognized and the group field system collapsed.ManorOnce the creeks were formed, those creeks were also cluttered.Kamakura PeriodOr laterMuromachi PeriodUntil the end of the year, the Chikugo River basinShoji,Otomo,Mr. Ouchi,Ryuzoji,ShimazuDominate one after another,Battle of the Chikugo RiverAlthough many wars were repeated, there was nothing to see about the development of the Chikugo River.

The reason why the development of the Chikugo River came to be actively carried outHideyoshi ToyotomiAchieved national unificationAzuchi-Momoyama PeriodThis is from the development of the Chikugo River on a sandbar at the end of the period.1592(Tensho20 years) Shogen Ogata joined the club to cultivate Dokaijima and survived the interference from the residents of Hizen Province.1610(KeichoIt took 15 years to successfully clear the land (18 years).

1605From (Keicho 10th year)Higo countryKikuchiKikuchi Juzaemon, a descendant of the island, has been on a floating island since 1610.ChikugoMihama-gun(Mizumagun) Resident Saburozaemon pioneered OnojimaNittaWas reclaimed.These islands have been certified as Chikugo country territories and are still today.FukuokaHas become a part of.1622(Genwa8 years)Yanagawa DomainBeniya Shichirozaemon, a wealthy merchant in Mizuma District, who was a monetary maker, has cultivated 80 town walks by reclamation.

Around this time, the reclaimed land was "搦"(Karami) or"Open』(Hiraki) was called. Reclamation for "搦"EmbankmentFrom the technique of entwining branches such as bamboo with the stake that is the center of the stake, it is thought that the etymology of "kai" comes from pioneering, cultivating, and developing.

Water controlBusiness isEdo PeriodFrom the beginningClanIt is started by the initiative.1600(5th year of Keicho)Battle of SekigaharaIn ChikugoKurume CastleLord'sHidekane KobayakawaとYanagikawa CastleLord'sMuneshige Tachibana[Annotation 7]Participated in the Western ArmyReformAnd insteadMitsunari IshidaBy making a great achievement to captureYoshimasa TanakaIs the landlord of Chikugo Ichikuni and Yanagikawa 32 stones1601Although he joined the club (6th year of Keicho), Yoshimasa worked on the repair of the Chikugo River as early as possible.1606It took 11 years from (Keicho 13th year) to the Senoshita district (Kurume city)MeanderShortcut the flow path of the Chikugo River to eliminateSetoshita cut-off(Shosuiro) was excavated and the flow path of the Chikugo River was changed.Tadamasa TanakaBecame the feudal lord of Kurume 21 stones after being reformed by MutsuYutaka ArimaContinues to improve the riverKaneiYear (1624~1643)Anbu embankmentWas embanked.

On the other hand, HizenSaga DomainConsulNaoshima NaoshimaEngraved its name in the history of medieval civil engineeringShigeyasu Naritomi(Naridomi / Shigeyasu) is from HamaguritakeNakagawaThe water that flows down to the Ono River, which is a tributary of the river, is guided around the mountains by a waterway to the Tade River.Hamaguritake"1626Completed in (Kanei 3rd year),Kanzaki District OfIrrigationI tried.

But this converselyFukuoka domainThe water on the side became inconvenient and the Ono River died.There is an anecdote that a woman named "Oman" on the Fukuoka domain side tried to break the embankment to protest this, and both mother and child threw themselves into the waterfall.

After that, Shigeyasu set up an overflow called "Nokoshi" as a measure against flooding of the waterway, and distributed water to the Ono River when the water level increased.Also, ShigeyasuSanne-gun-Yabu-gun(Yabugun) ・Kimono-gun(Kiigun)[Annotation 8]To protect from flood damage1643In (Kanei 20), a 12-kilometer double embankment was built on the right bank of the Chikugo River.

this is"ChirikuhachimanguAlthough it is not left due to river improvement, the levee has not collapsed for nearly 300 years since the embankment, and the local residents have been protected from flood damage.For this reason, the name of Shigeyasu was hailed with great respect in the county, and Kitashigeyasu Village and Minami Shigeyasu Village were once named after Shigeyasu in the county.[Annotation 9]Was as much as it existed.

In addition, as a groyne, water baskets and baskets were installed in various places, but the baskets are used against water currents.Right angleThere is a side effect of cutting the revetment on the opposite bank to weaken the water flow by installing it inKurume DomainHowever, in the lower reaches, the Saga and Yanagawa domains are in conflict.The ironic result was that the flood damage was amplified by each clan's self-establishment of the groyne.

Chikugo River four weirs

17st centuryFrom the second half18st centuryIn each clan in the basinNittaActively carry out developmentTributeI tried to increase the harvest.At this time in the Chikugo RiverChikugo River four weirsCalled "Fixed weirWas built one after another.From the order of completionYamada dam-Oishi Weir-Fukurono Weir-Eri Weir(Tokojima dam) Refers to the four weirs.

The first thing I worked on wasYamada damIs.The opportunity was1662(Kanbun2 years) to the next1663(Kanbun 3rd year)droughtAs a countermeasure, Yamada Weir and its water sourceHorikawa irrigation 1664It was excavated in (Kanbun 4th year), but repeated flood damage caused the Horikawa water intake.ReservoirI filled it with (taisa) and the irrigation stool became worse.

there1722(Kyoho7 years) Improved water intake and automatically opens and closes according to the amount of waterSluiceWith remodeling totunnelThe water supply was stabilized by excavation.As a result, the agricultural land targeted for Horikawa water supply has advanced the development of new rice fields, but it does not benefit from it.Asakura-gunDrought damage continued in Shimo-Oba Village and other areas.

So Shimo Oba VillageShoyaMetKoga HyakukoTo supply water to these areas as wellShinborikawa irrigationApply to the Fukuoka Domain Office for excavation.The sixth feudal lord of the Fukuoka domainKuroda TsugutakaAs a business under the direct control of the Fukuoka Domain1759(Treasure calendarIn 9), the major renovation of the Yamada Weir was started, and the height was raised by 1 meter and the width of the floodgate was doubled to increase the amount of water intake, and water was also supplied to areas that did not benefit from conventional water.This Shinborikawa irrigation water1764It took 14 years to complete (5th year of the Horeki) and 150HaWas supplied with water.

In addition, Hyakuko made a plan for the second major renovation of the Yamada Weir, which was opposed by farmers in Nagata, Asakura District, downstream.Nagata area湿 地The reason was that it was a belt and the damage caused by inundation would increase if water was drawn, but Hyakuko persuaded the residents of Nagata to agree to carry out "wetlanding work" to dry the wetlands in the area. Get permission from the domain office.

And1790(KanseiIn 2 years), the Yamada weir was renovated, and two years later, the promised "Nagata wet drainage work" was started, which took 2 years.1825(BunseiIt was completed in 8 years).The Horikawa Aqueduct is used to supply water to paddy fields.Water millWas set up in various places, but as the largest oneAsakura Triple Water WheelThere is.

The next plan wasOishi Weir.Ukiha-gunThe southern banks of the Chikugo River, such as Natsuume Village, Kiyosou Village, Takada Village, Imatake Village, and Suge Village, were poorly harvested areas with poor water access despite the proximity of the Chikugo River.It was a shoya in the same area to draw water to improve the harvest and save the poverty of the farmers.Kuribayashi Jibei-Honmatsu Heiemon-Yamashita Sukezaemon-Shigetomi Heizaemon-Sakunosuke InoyamaFive peopleOishi irrigation waterI made an excavation plan. The plan was promoted after the drought in 1663, and an application for permission was made to Takamura Gon, who is a magistrate of Ukiha-gun. I submitted an application.

Initially, permission from the domain office was not obtained, but Gentao Yamamura, who was a Fushin Bugyo of the Kurume domain, visited the site at the request of 5 Shoya, and as a result, as a result of discussions based on detailed investigations, in 1664, with Yamada Weir. At about the same time, as a business under the direct control of the Kurume Domain, the third feudal lord of the Kurume DomainArima Yoritoshi TheElder-Niwa YoromoWas ordered to take overall command of construction and construction was started.First, the Oishi lock, which is the intakeIkuha-gunConstructed on Oishi, 3.6 meters wide and 3.0 kilometers long irrigation canal.

Next day1665In (Kanbun 5th year), construction work was carried out to add a floodgate and double the width of the channel.further1666In (Kanbun 6th year), the Chikugo RiverTributaryAfter the construction to accommodate the surplus water in the Kosegawa River, the construction to accommodate the water in the Kumakami River, which is a tributary of the Chikugo River, was finally carried out.1667Kumakami River, which was held in (Kanbun 7th year) and was already completedNagano weirA large stone weir was constructed at the Oishi floodgate point to carry out rational water operation with.1674(EnpoIt was completed in 2 years).As a result, the Chikugo River and its tributaries, the Kose River and the Kumakami River, were connected through the Oishi irrigation water, and by accommodating the water, efficient water management was achieved, and 500 hectares of agricultural land benefited.

Oshoya, which controls 28 villages in Ukiha-gun, inspired by the completion of the Oishi damYasanzaemon Tashiro Shigeei(Shigehide) is the eldest sonShigehiro TashiroWith (from Shige)Fukurono WeirPlanned to build. "GoshoyaSince the Oishi irrigation water was completed by the hands of, there is no doubt that it will not be possible to complete the cut-through of Fukurono. "1672(Kanbun 12th year) I applied for a construction request to the Kurume Domain Office, and obtained permission after investigating the domain.The current planUkiha CityThe plan was to set up an intake at the Tatsuse point in the dawn to draw water, but this point was the point of the Yomei Gorge on the Chikugo River, and the cliff approached the riverbank, and in addition it was large.MeanderSince it was a section that has been constructed, the length of the canal will be long in normal irrigation construction.

For this reason, Shigeei and Shigeo father and son dug a tunnel with a total length of 1.3 kilometers from the otter to the lottery yard, which is the exit, after difficult construction.1673(Kanbun 13 years)Fukurono irrigation waterWas completed.However, since the expected amount of water could not be secured after the completion of the irrigation, we decided to install a weir near the irrigation intake.

This is Fukurono Weir1676(4th year of Enpo), a fixed weir with a length of 120 meters and a width of 110 meters was completed, and 450 hectares were moistened.Unlike the other three weirs, this Fukurono weir and irrigation weir are not under the direct control of the clan, but were constructed by Tashiro's father and son with private fortune.

The last thing was plannedEri Weir(Tokojima dam).Mii-gun-Mihara-gunBoth counties also had poor water access, and the residents of the basin wanted to use the water from the Chikugo River somehow.For some time, the Tokojima site, which is near the confluence with the Sada River, has been regarded as a promising candidate for an intake point for irrigation construction, but this point is a rapid stream with a large amount of water, and is also the boundary between the Fukuoka and Kurume domains. Technical and political issues delayed the start of construction.

However, the momentum for the development of Nitta increased and it was a shoya in the same area.Takayama Rokuemon-Shinzaemon Akiyama-Kiyoemon Nakagaki-Bay Jinzaemon The1710(HoeiIn May 7), he explained the necessity of irrigation excavation to the father and son of Honjo City, who was the president of Mii District.The father and son of Honjo agreed with this and submitted a petition to the Kurume Domain under the joint name of 5 villages in the same county.The sixth feudal lord of the Kurume DomainArima NorifusaOrdered the Kurume Domain Fushin Bugyo, Mataroku Kusano, and others to proceed immediately as a project under the direct control of the Kurume Domain, but the residents of the Fukuoka Domain, Nagata, Asakura District, on the opposite bank, strongly opposed this plan.

The reason is that, as in the case of the opposition to the construction of the Yamada weir, the construction of the weir causes water to flow in and causes flood damage.1711(Hoei 8) Shoya in 11 villages, including Rokunosuke Kawagoe, sent a protest letter to the Kurume Domain to cancel the construction, and once settled by moving the Tokojima floodgate, which is the intake, to 2.2 kilometers downstream, but water transportation When Kawagoe was selected as the Nakaso point for the convenience of the two clan, it developed into a clan border dispute because this point was an area where the boundary between the two clan was not set.

On the other hand, it was Soden Village Shoya to complete the weir at an early stage.Marubayashi ZenzaemonPersuaded the residents of the Nagata area that "Nakaso is the area of ​​Soden Village", but on the contrary, the residentsabductionImprisonmentAfter being donetortureHe was detained for three months.The act of Zenzaemon, who dared to take the risk and sought a solution by himself in order to save the poor farmers, eventually obtained the consent of the residents on both banks.1712(Masanori2 years) Finally completed. 1,428 hectares of new land have been cleared and farmers on both banks are now able to harvest on an equal footing.However, Zenzaemon was seriously injured by torture and became physically handicapped, accelerating his death.

In this way, the Chikugo River four weirs were a water utilization project led by Shoya, and the idea behind them was to save the needy farmers.The life-threatening behavior seen in Soden Village Shoya Marubayashi Zenzaemon has moved the clan and has provided great benefits to agriculture in the basin to this day.

The three weirs, Yamada, Oishi, and Eri, are still in operation, but the Fukurono weir is1954Completed in (29)Yomei DamIt was submerged by the sword, and it cannot be seen now.Instead of the Fukurono weir, a Fukurono intake tower is installed at the same point to supply water.

Modern Chikugo River development

MeijiSubsequent hydraulic engineering projects on the Chikugo River were carried out in consideration of the water transportation that was developing at that time.Chikugo River1884From (Meiji 17)Ministry of InteriorBeing subject to direct control river projects1886From (Meiji 19)First phase Chikugo River water repair projectFrom the estuaryOitaHita CityAlthough it was started in the meantime, the main work was low water floor construction to strengthen water transportation.

またYodogawa-Kiso River-Kuzuryu RiverWe made an effort to improve rivers all over the country.Johannis De LekeWas also involved in river improvement in the Chikugo River, but at this time as well, the main focus was on strengthening boat transportation, and an intermittent diversion bank was constructed 6 kilometers from the mouth of the Chikugo River to control sedimentation at the mouth of the river and provide water transportation. planned.But1889(Meiji 22) An unprecedented flood occurred in the basin, which triggered this.1923(Taisho12 years)Second phase Chikugo River river water repair projectWas done.

In the second phase, in addition to the construction of the main tributary embankment, the excavation work of the main stream of the Chikugo River, which was started in the first phase, was carried out in earnest, and the four cut-off channels of Kanashima, Komorino, Tenkenji, and Sakaguchi were excavated. The river channel was straightened to improve the flow capacity.This project was planned by Masayoshi Tanaka at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, and at his own expense he made a one-thousandth model of the Chikugo River and demonstrated its effectiveness.This model is Japan's first river irrigation model experiment.This cut-off reduced the total length by 4 kilometers.

Regarding modern irrigation, in addition to the conventional four weirs of the Chikugo River, pumping water has come to be taken in the tidal section in the section 29 km from the mouth of the Chikugo River.In this sectionhigh tideTo become andAriake Sea OfseawaterRuns up to the Chikugo River, but at this time the river water flowing from the upstream is pushed up to the surface of the river by seawater.

Such river water is written as "fresh water" and "AoAlthough it is called locally, the intake of irrigation water using this blue has become popular since the Edo period.Initially at a floodgate, etc.CreekWater was taken from the water, but in the Meiji erapumpWater intake by 1HaAgricultural land supplies water by Ao.On the other hand, direct water intake in the middle reaches of the Chikugo River is also carried out by a pump.1893In Kurume City (Meiji 26)Steam enginePump water intake was started.

Chikugo River system hydraulic control basic plan

For details on the damage to the Chikugo River basin caused by the floods in western Japan in 28Showa 28 West Japan Flood #Chikugo River BasinSee.

After the war, it is indispensable to talk about the hydraulic control of the Chikugo River.1953(28)May 6からMay 6Occurred over28 West Japan FloodIs.At this time, Kumamoto Prefecture, upstream of the Chikugo RiverAso-gunOguni machiOn June 6th, it started to rain 25mm in one day, and in five days.Mount AsoTotal rainfall exceeds 1,000 mmTorrential rainIt became.

This caused the Chikugo River to cause the worst flood ever.KurumeStartAsakura-gun-Ukiha-gunThe Chikugo River basin suffered the worst flood damage since recorded history, with 147 dead and 54 victims.U.S. Army,Security forcesAlso carried out rescue activities.in particular,MidstreamAt the dawn point of the clubKyushu Electric PowerWas buildingYomei DamCollapsed due to strong water currents on both banksDam breakInvited the situation.This became a temporary problem, such as the establishment of an investigation committee later, but the fundamental problem was inadequate river maintenance rather than dam failure.

Ministry of ConstructionKyushu Regional Construction Bureau[Annotation 10] The1949Based on the "River Revision and Rehabilitation Plan" (24), a plan was made to construct dams on the Kusu and Tsue rivers, which are tributaries of the Chikugo River.Planned high water flowWas forced to revise.

Chikugo River Water Resources Development Basic Plan

Regarding water utilization, in the plains, agricultural water was mainly taken from Oishi Weir, Eri Weir, Yamada Weir and fresh water (Ao), but on the plateau, groundwater was pumped up by a pump.

However, as a result of the disorderly installation of 1,400 water pumps, water shortages due to the decrease in groundwater and soaring maintenance costs for water pumps became problems. "Land improvement project at the foot of Mt. Mino" was planned.

on the other hand,Fukuoka City・ Kurume City ・ Omuta City ・Saga CityIn urban areas such as Japan, the population has increased rapidly and the demand for water supply has become tight.Under these circumstances1962(Showa 37) The "Water Resources Development Promotion Law" and "Water Resources Development Corporation Law" were enforced and the Water Resources Development Corporation[Annotation 11]Was launched.Chikugo River1964Designated as a water resource development water system in (39), "Chikugo River Water Resources Development Basic Plan"(Full plan) was formulated.

In addition, Kyushu Regional Construction Bureau, Ministry of ConstructionMinistry of Agriculture[Annotation 12]Kyushu Agricultural Administration Bureau-Ministry of International Trade and Industry[Annotation 13]Fukuoka Trade and Industry Bureau, four prefectures in northern Kyushu, and related economic organizations such as the Kyushu-Yamaguchi Economic Federation1963In 38, the "Northern Kyushu Water Resources Development Council" was formed to carry out comprehensive water utilization development for the Chikugo River system.Promote further water resource development of the Chikugo River system centered on the full planFukuoka metropolitan areaTo ensure the water supply of1969(Showa 44) March, "Northern Kyushu Water Resources Development Master Plan"created.

In this plan, not only the Chikugo River systemOngagawaWater system,Kase RiverWater system,Yabe RiverWater system,Rokkaku RiverWater system andKikuchi RiverIt was decided to carry out large-scale comprehensive development using a multipurpose dam, including the water system, to stabilize water demand in northern Kyushu, which is suffering from water shortages, and to use water as reasonably as possible.

Based on this, the plan was to use the Chikugo River Mainstream Kanedate Dam.Chikugo Oizumi, Inomata Dam and Kusu River Dam on the Kusu River, Hyugano Dam on the Hanatsuki River, and other three dams, Koishiwara RiverEgawa Dam(Fukuoka City Waterworks Bureau), Of the Sada RiverTerauchi Dam, Kumakami RiverGousho Dam(Gosho Dam), a tributary of the Yabe RiverHoshino RiverManako Dam, on the Kase RiverKasegawa Dam, On the Hasama River, a tributary of the Kikuchi RiverRyumon DamWe tried to provide efficient water supply by accommodating water between water systems through Saga water conveyance and Tsue diversion.

Based on this, dam and irrigation development was promoted,1975In (50), the Egawa Dam was constructed and the Ryotsuku Plain irrigation project was completed.1979(Showa 54)Fukuoka water conveyanceTerauchi Dam was constructed as a water source for the project,1978(Showa 53)Fukuoka droughtThe operation was tentatively started in.After that, the Fukuoka water conveyance business1983Although water was passed in (58)1985(Showa 60) Chikugo Oizumi,1993With the completion of the Gousho Dam in (5), business expansion and maintenance has progressed, and Fukuoka CityDazaifu City-ChikushinoEtc. in 9 cities and 9 townsWater supplyIs being supplied.

In the downstream part, the Chikugo Oizumi is used as the water source.Ministry of AgricultureThe "Chikugo River Downstream Water Project" was constructed in collaboration with the "National Chikugo River Downstream Land Improvement Project" of the Kyushu Regional Agricultural Administration Bureau.The water for the lower reaches of the Chikugo River is from Kurume City.Omuta City・ Saga City ・Tosu CityIt supplies water supply and agricultural water for 9 cities and 13 towns and villages.Furthermore, "Matsubara / Shimouke", which adds a water supply purpose to the Matsubara / Shimouke Dam, which had no purpose of supplying water in the past.Dam redevelopment projectWas carried out, and the capacity allocation of Bairin Lake (Matsubara Dam Lake) and Honeycomb Lake (Shimouke Dam Lake) was reexamined to establish water utilization capacity.

But1994(HeiseiIn the drought in Fukuoka (6 years), no water truck was dispatched, but the water supply was restricted for 290 days, so the water source was further improved as a countermeasure, and now it is.Koishiwara River Dam(Koishiwara River) ・ Construction of Mt. Ooyama Dam (Akaishi River) is underway.In addition, we will promote efficient water operation in cooperation with the Kikuchi River system, and strengthen the water supply by using the Tsue diversion channel constructed between the Ryumon dam and the Tsue diversion weir (Tsue river) upstream of the Shimouke dam. I am also planning.

Warning bell for river administration-Honeycomb castle conflict-

Many dams for hydraulic control and water utilization were constructed on the Chikugo River, but on the other hand, from early on.Public worksThe problem of how to proceed was highlighted.The representative is "Matsubara Dam / Shimouke Dam"Honeycomb Castle ConflictIt is.

1957The construction of the dam was planned from (32), but the residents opposed the fact that the residents' briefing session of the Kyushu Regional Construction Bureau did not explain any measures to rebuild their lives, and the following yearTomoyuki MuroharaAn "absolute opposition resolution" was made around the site, and a "honeycomb castle" was constructed and siege at the Shimouke Dam site as a manifestation of the intention of a thorough anti-war against the Ministry of Construction.

During this time, with public works projects such as bloodshed cases against forced execution and administrative litigation to suspend construction.Basic human rights(Article 29 of the ConstitutionProperty rightMurohara continued to pose the problem of infringement to the administration.Honeycomb Castle fell in 1964, but Murohara's resistance killed him.1970It continued until (Showa 45).

However, this conflict is a relief system for submerged areas.River comprehensive development projectIt was a big opportunity to let the administration recognize the deficiency of.In 1973, after the death of Murohara, the aim was to improve the livelihood and welfare of local residents by systematically developing and promoting the industrial infrastructure of the submerged area.Water Source Area Measures Special Measures Law"(Water Special Law) was enforced.River law-Land acquisition law-Specific multipurpose dam methodWas also revised at the same time.

The 13-year beehive castle conflict was a turning point where the river administration changed its perspective from development priority to coexistence with the region, and had a great impact on the subsequent dam construction.

Murohara's words, "Public works must be reasonable, legal, and compassionate," continue to live as the basis of compensation negotiations, and public works reviews since the 1990s are an extension of this. is there.

Inomata Dam, which was planned to be constructed in the uppermost part of the Kusu River in the Chikugo River[Annotation 14]Was canceled.

In addition, the Tsuetate Dam, Kusu River Dam, Hyugano Dam, etc., which were planned in the "Northern Kyushu Water Resources Development Master Plan", ended in failure.

Currently planned for the Shirohara RiverShirohara River DamThe locals are divided into pros and cons and are out of control.Great Heisei mergerWas born inKanzakiThe mayoral election was also an issue, and the new mayor who was born is in favor of the dam.

またFurukawa YasushiGovernor of Saga Prefecture ThePerforated damProposed dam construction by the method to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, which is a business operator, and in response to this, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism started the Shirohara River Dam from a multipurpose dam.Flood control damChanged to.

However1979Twenty-nine years have already passed since the announcement of the plan (54).In addition, the opposition of the residents is fierce even though it is under construction on the Kose River.2009It took 21 years to complete (39).

Therefore, he is the river manager of the Chikugo River.Ministry of ConstructionThe Kyushu Regional Construction Bureau has decided to incorporate the eradication of Oncomelania humilis as a countermeasure against Schistosoma japonicum into the river improvement that is being implemented as part of the hydraulic control project.In particularRiverbedLevelingconcreteBy improving the revetment, it is suitable for breeding Oncomelania humilis.SusukiHara湿 地By burying the obi, it was to drive the habitat into ruin.

However, in the Komorino district of Kurume City on the left bank of the Shinhoman River, the habitat of infected Oncomelania humilis has been continuously confirmed, and countermeasures have been required.

The Ministry of Construction formulated the second five-year plan for the Chikugo River flood control project in 1965, and planned the "Kurume City Higashi Kushihara Large-scale Embankment Project" as a large-scale embankment project in Kurume City.AlsoJapan Water AgencyAs part of the Chikugo River Water Resources Development Basic PlanChikugo OizumiPlanned to build.Both of these projects will involve large-scale riverbed rehabilitation, but since they will be constructed in the final distribution area of ​​Oncomelania humilis, they have also embarked on a full-scale eradication of Schistosoma japonicum.

1984In (59), Chikugo Oizumi,1993The Higashikushihara Embankment Project will be completed in 5, but during this time, the Ministry of Construction and the Japan Water Agency have carried out thorough riverbed maintenance.EmbankmentIn the basin municipalities such as Kurume City, the riverbeds were cleaned and pampas grass was cut off, and the habitat of Oncomelania humilis was destroyed.As a result,1990In (2), Fukuoka Prefecture and Kurume City conducted a habitat survey of Oncomelania humilis and confirmed that the Oncomelania humilis had been eradicated.Safety Declaration"announced.

However, due to the fact that Schistosoma japonicum is a chronic disease and the reason for eliminating omissions in the survey, a follow-up survey was conducted for another 10 years.After the investigation2000(12), since there were no newly infected patients or outbreaks of Oncomelania humilis, "Declaration of terminationWas announced, and the schistosoma japonicum that has plagued the residents of the Chikugo River basin for many yearsSucceeded in complete eradicationdid.At the same time, it was eradicated in other infected areas such as the Tone River and Fuji River, and Japan was the only one in the world to succeed in eradicating Schistosoma japonicum.

Schistosoma japonicum does not exist in Japan as of 2014,public healthHowever, it is certain that the Oncomelania humilis was artificially extinct from the Chikugo River basin, and a "Miyairi Kai Memorial Monument" was erected in Kurume City to memorialize the Oncomelania humilis.

Chikugo RiverKurume Domain(Arima family),Fukuoka domain(Kuroda family),Saga Domain(Nabeshima family),Yanagawa Domain(Tachibana family)'S four clan bordered each other, and there were frequent border conflicts and water conflicts, and the mutual relationship was terrible.For this reason, bridging is strictly prohibited from the viewpoint of clan defense, and as a substitute transportation.Water transportationHas developed.1789(KanseiIn the "Chikugo Kamisangun Interrogation Handbook" edited in the first year), 19 ferryboats have already been registered, and the number has continued to increase since then, with 62 ferryboats at its peak.FerryIt became enough to count.

Also on both banks of the Chikugo RiverTenshoOnojima, which was developed by Saburozaemon, a resident of Mizuma District, was gradually emphasized as a transportation hub, and the port was developed.The Saga domain is nowSaga CityMorotomi TownToMorotomi PortWas built and used as a military base for the clan.In addition, the Kurume domain1751(Treasure calendarIn the first year), the XNUMXth feudal lordArima YoriyukiWith the life of (Yuki)Mihama-gunHainuzuka Village (Chikugo) Relocate the inhabitantsWakatsu PortWas built as a base for the transportation of goods such as agricultural products.

The current development was made by the construction of Wakatsu Port.Okawa CitySo, upstream BungoHitaBy boat or raftCedarIs transported, and the timber processing industry develops as a timber accumulation area.Even nowClosetIt is the main production area of.In addition, the Kurume Domain, Saga Domain, and Yanagawa Domain set up river lines along the Chikugo and Hayatsue rivers to control river traffic.

Since the Meiji era, the number of ferryboats has increased one after another, and Wakatsu Port1922(Taisho 11), Morotomi Port1923(Taisho 12nd year)Ministry of InteriorIt became a designated port by the decree.AlsoFishing portHas been developed one after another from the immediate upstream of the Chikugo River and Hayatsue River diversion points.Nori,EtsuThere are still 12 fishing ports as fishing bases.

About land transportation1935(Showa10 years)National railwaySaga LineChikugo Okawa StationとMorotomi Station間 にChikugo River Lift BridgeWas completed, and the center of the bridge moved upward when the ship passed.After that, road bridges were built in various parts of the Chikugo River.motorizationThe number increased with development, but on the other handFerryIs left behind by the trends of the times and is being abolished one after another.

In addition, river development such as dams also affected boat transportation, from Hita to Okawa.CedarThe raft that carried the rafts replaced land transportation with the completion of the Yoake Dam.Coupled with the development of land transportation due to the development of national roads, the decline of ferryboats has been spurred.1994(6)Shimoda handing over is abolishedFinally, the ferry in the Chikugo River disappeared.However, in recent years, the momentum for reviewing water transportation has increased, and there are movements to revive the water transportation of the Chikugo River.

On the other hand, since the Meiji era, the construction of bridges on the Chikugo River has become popular.Initially JNRKagoshima Main LineAnd Saga Line,Nishitetsu Tenjin Omuta Line OfRailway bridgeWas built and the road bridge was delayedMiyanojin Bridge 1924It was completed in (Taisho 13).This Miyanojin Bridge1948Until around (Showa 23)Nishitetsu Amagi LineIt was a bridge with a road and railroad shared with.

These bridges constructed in the Meiji and Taisho eras were all replaced for various reasons such as being washed away by floods.As a special one, there is the Chikugo River Lift Bridge mentioned in the previous section on water transportation.1987(62) When the Saga Line was abolished, removal was considered due to the decline in water transportation.However, the survival was decided by the petition of Okawa City and Saga City, and it is now used as a pedestrian bridge where the central part goes up and down eight times a day.
