LG Display monitors the water quality 24 hours a day to prevent the water pollution accidents. LG Display installed the rain water exclusion system which transports the rain fall to its in-house wastewater treatment plant to prevent penetration of hazardous material into the river when the chemical is leaked. The wastewater generated by Gumi plants is first treated at the plants and sent to the city's terminal disposal plant of sewage and then finally discharged to River Nakdong. The pollution level of wastewater is strictly set to no more than 50% of legal regulation. The wastewater first treated at Paju plants is sent to the city's terminal disposal plant of sewage and then finally discharged to River Manoo to maintain the water level. There have never been the local issues of water pollution from all plants. Moreover, the company signed 1-Company-1-River agreement with Gumi City and Paju City to clean the nature near the plants and analyze the water quality once a month. The analysis result is reflected in operation of the wastewater treatment facilities at the its plants.
