Influence of the Point Source Inflow on the Water Quality Variation in the Downstream of Hyeongsan River

점오염원 유입이 형산강하류 수질변화에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 2008.10.30


The influence of the point source inflow on the water quality variation in the downstream of Hyeongsan River was investigated. As the results of seasonal variation, the pollutant concentrations of dry season were 1.5-4 times higher than those of wet season. The increase rate of $BOD_5$, $COD_{Mn}$, T-N, T-P due to point source were ranged to $8.1\sim42.6%$, $7.3\sim41.9%$ and $17.1\sim207%$ as the inflow of P1, P2 and P3, respectively. After P1, P2 and P3 inflow, the accumulated increase rate were 64.3%, 32.6%, 93.1% and 258.9% in $BOD_5$, $COD_{Mn}$, T-N, T-P, respectively. It was found that the influence of point source inflow on the water quality in the downstream of Hyeongsan River is severe.
