[The Hwankyung Ilbo] The Ministry of Environment announced that it will focus on management of non-point source from early May to late June to prevent water pollution ahead of the rainy season.
Non-point pollution sources are pollutants emitted from unspecified places such as roads, agricultural lands, construction sites, etc., and pollute rivers while flowing along with rainwater.
Starting this month, the Ministry of Environment will provide pre-training for about 2,700 managers who work in non-point pollution installation reporting sites for each watershed (provincial) environment agency.
In June, it plans to inspect 160 plants and large-scale development workplaces located in the upstream area of the water source and the areas where there is a concern about green tide, under the supervision of the watershed (provincial) environment agency.
Major inspections include the establishment and operation of the nonpoint pollution reduction facility, the proper implementation of the nonpoint pollution reduction plan, and compliance with the management and operation standards of the reduction facility.
Non - point pollutants not only pollute the water quality of the rivers due to the seasonal characteristics of the country, where rainfall is high in summer, but also cause the green seasons in summer.
The Ministry of Environment plans to prevent water pollution in rivers such as green tide by focusing on nonpoint pollutants in preparation for the rainy season.
