Continuous Exforts towards Water Resources development
Multi-purpose dams will be built continually until 2011, securing new water resources of 5.1 billion §©, increasing the reserve rate to 8.5%.
Constructing eco-friendly dams and pursuing projects to promote the welfare and income of residents around dams.
During '94 - '96 droughts, the areas which were covered by multi-regional water supply systems were not effected by the drought. This case proved that the multi-regional water supply system is an effective solution against severe drought.

Expansion of channel improvement from 61% to 77% by the year 2001
Continuous construction of multipurpose reservoirs to increase the capacity of flood control
Maintenance & expansion of the urban drainage facilities
Improving the early flood forecasting system of 5 major rivers including the Han-River and extending it to mid and small size rivers.
Joint-integration of the early flood forecasting system using Remote Sensing/GIS to increase the efficiency of the system.
Regulation of the land utilization of possible flooded areas.
