In South Korea, the changes in the water allocation mechanism have started after the pollution of the Nak-Dong river caused by the Fenol incident in the 1990s. The present Korean system is inefficient: municipalities demand more fresh water than they actually need to provide water to all users. The solution will be the provision of accurate information on water use and a better tuning of water policies between regional and national governments.
