Abstract

The Ministry of Environment and the National Institute of Environmental Research has been running the Water Quality Forecasting System at 16 weirs of the four major rivers since 2012, after conducting test-operation over the Sejong Weir segment since August 1, 2011. The Water Quality Forecasting System is a method of forecasting changes to water quality and reporting the result using numerical modeling based on pollution source, water quality assessment data, hydro-meteorological data, and weather forecasting data. Currently, it provides water quality forecast services on water temperature and Chlorophyll-a ("Chl-a") of 16 weirs of the four major rivers for the next week.
From 2009 to 2012, the Korean government conducted the Four Major Rivers Restoration Project to prevent floods and droughts in the four major rivers - Han river, Nakdong river, Geum river, and Yeongsan river and to restore the water quality and ecosystem. (The rest omitted)
