- Environmental problems are mounting at an unprecedented rate in our society. The news media reported recently that fish died by hundreds of thousands in a river due to waterborne toxic wastes which were illegally discharged into a river. The large Shi-hwa lake, a reclaimed lake in tidal area on the west coast near the city of Ansan, where one of the largest industrial estates in the capital region is located, had to release its water back into the ocean because the water was so polluted by waterborne industrial wastes and municipal wastes that it could not be irrigated onto farm land. These are only some of examples to indicate how our environmental problems are increasingly serious, not only by a few industrial plant managers' illegal actions and by our negligent administrative practices in applying strict environmental laws against illegal and harmful environmental damages, but also by the irresponsible behavior of the public in general.
