The land use pattern, water quality and vegetation were investigated in the six tributaries, including Hanggeumcheon and Satancheon of the Namhan hydrosphere, Iksancheon, Jeonjucheon and Gosancheon of the Mankyung hydrosphere as well as Jongeupcheon of the Dongjin hydrosphere. Forest and farmland area were extensive in Hanggeumcheon, Satancheon and Gosancheon. Farmland and livestock area were wide in Iksancheon. Jeonjucheon were occupied with broad urban. Industrial and urban area were extensive in Jongeupcheon. The loading amounts of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), total nitrogen (T-N), total phosphorus (T-P) of Iksancheon and chemical oxygen demand (COD) of Jeonjucheon were determined to be very high, respectively. The quality of water in Hanggeumcheon, Satancheon and Gosancheon were determined to be good quality. The species diversity was lower in the down stream than in the upper stream except for the Gosancheon. Life form of plane were mostly perennial plane in the upper stream and annual plants in the down stream of rivers. It was estimated that there is high level of disturbance in the down stream of rivers. The quality of water was significantly correlated with farmland and forest area. In conclusion, human impact, such as farmland and housing lot exerted an influence on the disturbance of down stream and the water quality of rivers.
