About us

We protect the lives and properties of the citizens against the flood.
Mission
Minimize loss of civilian lives and properties from flood disaster

Major tasks
When the flood possibility would be present due to an atmosphere phenomenon like as a heavy rainfall or typhoon, we model and predict the flood using a flood forecast system in main points of competent river basins, and immediately disseminate the productions of flood forecast.
For an accurate flood forecast we collect and distribute a real-time hydrologic data (rainfall, water level) transmitted from monitoring stations which are set up in Yeongsan River, Sumjin River, Tamjin River, Mangyeong River, and Dongjin River occupying a great part of Jeolla Province and a part of Gyeongsang Province.
