Incredible Project! Looks like it took a lot of work! Just beautiful!

How deep is the water? And how far does it goes?

Thanks guys for the replies:)

Remember that this is a RE-storation project, meaning that there was a stream originally but in the 50's S.Korea's gov decided to build a highway over it and gradually covered the stream with icky concrete. So no water just popped up from some place:)

@skipperBill
The stream is deep enough for fishes like carp to live there. The stream is connected to the Han River so there are some fishes at the Cheonggyecheon stream too.

The distance of the stream is about 10.84km.

Wait, I don't get it. Where was the river before? I'm guessing they built the freeway over the river but that's gotta be the weirdest thing to build a freeway in a river bed.
