It is necessary to preserve the entire aquatic environment because it is composed of various factors, such as the water quality and quantity, aquatic creatures, bottom sediments, waterfronts, landscapes, and so on. For this purpose, an approach of integrated watershed management should be constructed, that entirely covers the water environment and water circulation. In addition, the role of regional water facilities, such as sewage treatment facilities, grows even more important for the aquatic environment conservation and the restoration, and in some cases direct water purification for aquatic environment should be necessary. In the Urban and Environmental Engineering Laboratory, we are working on the integrated preservation of the aquatic environment using various technologies and system approaches, such as direct environmental purification, ecosystem conservation, integrated watershed management, and wastewater treatment.
