application in the Yongdam dam
The request for water use in a more efficient manner is steadily increasing from Korean society. The paradigm of water resource usage also has greatly increased people’s interest in water quality improvement and caring for ecosystem.

It led to a tentative agreement to supply water which will expire in 2021. The agreement with a fixed expiry date sparked researchers'' interest, and several research works have been conducted to assess future demands and develop the supply plans; however, most of them were based on quantitative analysis using data such as population growth.
