Environmental Officials from South Korea Visit DRBC

DRBC recently hosted a delegation of 15 government officials from South Korea at the commission's West Trenton headquarters. The delegation members were interested in meeting with DRBC staff and learning from them about DRBC’s programs and responsibilities concerning water quality management and protection, water supply allocation, and water conservation initiatives.

The delegation spent over 2 hours learning about the DRBC's unique approach to managing the water resources in the Delaware River Basin without regard to political boundaries. DRBC Communications Manager Clarke Rupert gave an overview of the basin and Drs. Tom Fikslin and Namsoo Suk of DRBC’s Science and Water Quality Management Branch led a question and answer session on commission water quality programs. Dr. Suk also assisted with translation services.

In addition to hosting several delegations from Korea, the DRBC in recent years has hosted visitors from China, Brazil, and India.
