HOME > INTRODUCTION > ABOUT US

  • We aim to protect lives and properties of the citizens from flood!
  • The Han river Flood Control Office, a part of the Ministry of Construction, is in charge of the flood forecast, hydrological observation, and hydrological data management for Han river, Imjin river, and Ansung stream basin located in the central area of Korea. As having a rainfall radar installed in Imjin river basin where there has been a yearly repeated flood, the Han river FCO is trying for timely flood forecast.
  • The Han river Flood Control Office was established in July 1974. Since then, as being sent to the flood control office, the data from the monitoring stations is analyzed and water level and discharge are calculated for the forecast points. These information is relayed to the central planning headquarters and other related agencies so that the flood forecast can be announced to the public. Thus the Han river Flood Control Office is trying to preserve national lives and properties from flood disasters.
