Under the distress of global economic disaster, Taiwan cannot insulate itself from it. To save the economics of Taiwan, Taiwan government initiated economic stimulation programs such as increase domestic demand, lower inheritance and gift taxes, and issue spending coupons etc. The objective is to ensure the continuous growth of Taiwan's economics to prevent recession. Under this wave of economic disaster, businesses utilize work reduction, worker lay off and even company close down etc. methods as counter measures. Although the slow down of business activities led to reduced wastewater pollution discharges, however, the issue of environmental protection shall not be stopped due to temporarily reduction in pollution. Especially, our country and worldwide governments have the understanding that economics must be revived. We believe that the global economics will recover quickly. At that time, the high pollution generation industrial and commerce activities will grow quickly. Thus, during the time of identify how to increase income and create economic development, as well as take care of environmental life quality are the important objectives to work on for all the relevant departments in the government. Water pollution has the features that it will affect the life quality of people immediately. It is the first issue concerning our countryman. It is also the priority item to be improved for environmental protection by relevant departments of government.
To implement national environmental protection policy, effective control of water pollution sources to reduce pollutant quantity discharges and prevent the degradation and contamination of river basin within the district, increase Environmental Protection Bureau's pollution auditing efficiency, at the same time, responding to the environmental impact of Yilan District caused by the more convenient transportation means through the opening of Hsuehshan Tunnel of the Pei-Yi Highway, Environmental Protection Bureau of Yilan County Government developed program to implement "Year 2009 Yilan County Basins and Water Pollution Auditing Control Program the Environmental Protection Bureau of Yilan Count Government (including Water Quality Monitoring and Private Organization Coordinated Response for Water Pollution Incident Emergency Response)" -- to continue the implementation of water pollution discharge permit application, review system, and the application data filing initiated (regularly) by the pollution source control organization, through the implementation of pollution control strategy and the study of river, and lake water quality and the important water body ecology species to make sure that the current status of the water body and water pollution sources within the governing district. And, water pollution source data management is used as supplementary reference for water pollution source control strategy plan.

E.For business organizations to understand relevant water pollution regulations, carry out regulation seminars for listed businesses within the districted to promote and explain regulations.
F.Carry out relevant educational promotion activities for water pollution control and reduction etc.
G.Carry out designated river ecology species study.
H.Regularly carry out river and lake water quality monitoring, analyze contamination causes to develop pollution control strategy and implementation methods.
I.Regularly report dirty locations of rivers to maintain the scenery of shores.
J.Regularly operate and maintain Donsan River Natural Water Quality Purification Pilot plant and Yilan River Meifu discharge water quality improvement plant and effectiveness evaluation.
K.Assist Environmental Protection Bureau to achieve 2,400 score for EPA's year 2009 auditing plan.
