 Abstract
We summarize the status of exploitable groundwater reserves in Korea based on reports of the National Basic Groundwater Plan, and review methods for estimating groundwater recharge rates, as recharge is a key factor in the estimation of exploitable groundwater reserves. We also outline the various methods used to assess exploitable groundwater reserves in previous groundwater investigation reports. Regarding advancements in the estimation of exploitable groundwater, we recommend that enhanced estimation methodologies (e.g., the water balance method and the advanced water table fluctuation method) and sustainable groundwater management concepts be adopted in the near future.
