Our country has suffered from serious natural disasters such as a localized heavy rainfall and typhoon in summer because of climate change such as El Nino, global warming in the past 10 years. Flood damage has become bigger and bigger and there has been drought frequently in winter and spring as well.

The Han river FCO has been trying to reduce flood and drought damage through effective distribution of living water, industrial water, and agricultural water and to control flood scientifically in summer.

Since opened in 1974, the Han river FCO has been in charge of flood forecasting for Han river, Imjin river, Ansung stream basin and has relayed realtime information to related agencies such as NEMA(National Emergency Management Agency), KMA(Korea Meteorological Administration ), Seoul Metropolitan Government, GyeongGI provincial government, and K-Water.

As enlarging the basic investigation related to water such as discharge and producing highly-related hydrological and river information, the Han river FCO will improve a public service.

Thus, we will do our best for stable water supply through proper water distribution between upstream and downstream and protection of national lives and properties through the precise flood forecast without delay in the base of these information.

Finally, thank you very much again for your visiting our home page and your suggestion, warm-hearted encouragement, and sincere advice. We hope that various hydrological information is serviced to all people visiting our home page. Please contact us if you need further more information.
