Sustainable Water Management 2018


The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) organizes this training program to share the concept of “Water Circulation City”, which aims at an eco-friendly management of water resources in the city as well as focuses on development of resilient and sustainable urban water infrastructure such as installation of permeable sidewalk pavement, LED oriented rainwater management facilities.

Since Seoul has four distinct seasons, precipitation gap between the different seasons leads to significant differences in the quality of water sources. Furthermore, the Han River is subject to numerous sources of pollution from Seoul to the metropolitan region. To tackle these issues, the city strictly manages the water quality from the water sources by applying scientific pollution control and measurement methods.
