IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

The evaluation of developable amount with riverbank filtration - a case in korea
Author : SANG IL LEE, SE-YEONG HAMM, SANG SIN LEE, SANG YEON YOO and JAE-YEOL CHEONG
In developed countries, riverbank filtration has a history of approximately 150 years. In Korea, the feasibility of riverbank filtration has been investigated since 1990's for large river basins, to find a solution to stably meet the ever-increasing demand for water. In this study, we have evaluated the developable amount of water with riverbank filtration for two largest river basins in Korea. As for the Han River basin, our attention was focused on the City of Seoul boundary, while four specific locations were studied in the Nakdong River basin. In selecting the proper site for riverbank filtration, analytic hierarchy process (AHP) was used, which selects the most optimal alternative by hierarchically classifying various attributes and then quantifying the importance of them. For estimating the developable amount, we have conducted groundwater modeling. In the Han River basin, the annual
developable amount of the site studied was estimated to be about 12.3 million m3, whereas total 160 million m3 was estimated at four locations in the Nakdong River basin.
