Yeongsan River Environmental Management Office to Conduct Ecological Inspection


Chairperson of the Yeongsan River Environmental Management Office, Park Eung-ryeol, has announced that it will release layout plans for the ecological inspection of the river for bryozoans or moss animals, which have been found to inhabit Korea’s major rivers, including the Yeongsan.

Environmental activists have raised concerns over the continuous discovery of the invertebrate moss animals in Korea’s four major rivers, the Hangang, Geumgang, Yeongsangang and Nakdonggang, insisting that the four-river refurbishment project of former President Lee Myung-bak has ruined the ecological system of the rivers.

According to the chairman, the moss animal is believed to have been first found in the early 1990s in nationwide rivers. However, environmental protection advocates have raised concerns that the animal has been detected more frequently in recent days, indicating the harmful effect of the four-river project.
