  • Water quality issues in Korea

  • Turbidity in streams and reservoirs

  • Water quality survey project in Haean

  • Control measures to improve water quality


Change of water quality issues in korea
Change of water quality issues in Korea

  • Before 1970s

    • No pollution problems

    • No concern about environmental conservation

  • In 1980s

    • High BOD from sewage

    • Fish farms installed in many reservoirs

  • In 1990s

    • Sewage treatment systems established

    • Active operations of fish farms within reservoirs

    • Eutrophication problems emerged

    • Algal toxins were reported


Current issues in 2000s
Current issues in 2000s

  • Turbidity and siltation – major ecological hazard

  • TMDL of BOD and TP for water quality management

    • Phosphorus removal from sewage

  • Biological assessment – new paradigm

  • Automatic monitoring – high frequency monitoring


Turbid water of the Soyang River on flood days that flows into Lake Soyang (July 15, 2006)

Increased rainstorm intensity

- Due to global warming ?

Made steeper

Turbidity

Turbidity increase in lake soyang

Turbidity problem in reservoirs

Turbid water lasts 3 months after summer monsoon in the Han River.

Reservoirs are filled with turbid water after monsoon.

Large dams prolongs the duration of turbid water in downstream.

Destroys aquatic ecosystems.

SAV is reduced.

Fisheries is reduced.

Result : change and reduction of fish and benthos community


Water quality survey project in the haean basin
Water quality survey project River.in the Haean basin

  • Purpose : to evaluate effectiveness of soil erosion control and diffuse pollution control

    • To assess water quality improvement in subbasins w/wo erosion control measures

    • To assess efficiencies of each erosion control method

    • To quantify specific export of nonpoint source pollution

  • Period : six years from 2009

Water level measurement
Water level measurement River.

  • Water level scales were installed.

    • Two automatic water level meter (sonic distance meter type) and two automatic water samplers will be installed in next year.

No fish is living in the Haean basin


Table 3. The export loadings(kg․yr River.-1․km-2) in each watershed.

  • The amounts of TP exported from these two basins were considerably high,

    compared to other many studies


Control measures of turbid water
Control measures of turbid water River.

  • Sociological strategy

  • Environmental management

  • Agricultural practice



Sometimes in vain
sometimes River.…… in vain



Food vs water
Food vs. Water River.

  • Disturbed land → poor water quality

  • Conserved ecosystem → good water quality

  • Can we choose only one?

  • The goal of Korea.

    ;even with intensive agriculture → good water quality

    Is it possible?


Thank you River.
