Survival and development of the country's reliance on oceans, marine resources utilization and protection, and is closely related to national survival and development, and Taiwan over sixteen hundred kilometers of coastline. In order to protect the marine environment and ecology, and can effectively prevent marine pollution, in November 2000 issued a "Marine Pollution Control Act." January 2001 Greek nationality merchant "Amorgos" in Kenting Longkeng ran aground causing serious pollution due to heavy fuel oil leaked, hit southern Taiwan's ecological environment, after the oil spill, the government has adopted to improve the act, and in accordance with "marine pollution Prevention Act" has promulgated the "marine Pollution Control Act Enforcement Rules," "major marine oil pollution emergency response plans," "marine environmental monitoring and monitoring stations set up way" and "the marine environment and marine environmental quality classification standards." and other regulations.
Taoyuan County has also actively learning experience in dealing with marine pollution and marine pollution contingency selection of members appointed by the implementation of the emergency plan training, conduct contingency decisions, field command, emergency response training on-site supervision and operations personnel; strain device support part, the purchase of pollution response equipment, marine pollution response team allocated to regional Coast Guard units, fishing, industrial zones and EPA park. In order to safeguard the precious marine resources and ecological environment, reduce the impact of marine pollution incident Taoyuan Oceanic and coastal environment, and promote positive and marine pollution prevention as the establishment of regional marine pollution emergency response system becomes very important for more than just cum Taoyuan County coast ocean background profiles are as follows:
1.Coast features overview
2.The natural ecological landscape
3.The algal reef ecological resources
4.The marine fishery resources
Comprehensive background information on the above, we can see the great waters of the county's rich natural landscape and human use of the area, if the current marine pollution incident occurs, the burden falls on the processing of the authorities who often are, and the jurisdiction of the organs in charge of marine oil pollution response equipment management personnel, most of them did not have the mechanical background is a professional, easy to cause poor performance of equipment maintenance, resulting in the first time failed to take advantage of recovery containment equipment performance, reduce the spread of contamination, and confined staff positions change, strain contractor personnel to implement practical training should be held constant; addition, the county is currently working marine oil pollution response often due to a lack of resources or the strain of the missing notification process, often resulting in missed the first time as the adoption of contingency, so as to make pollution occurs or when possible occurrence of immediately through a variety of communications tools that will quickly notify pollution disaster site conditions and coordinate the relevant authorities and polluters, take all the necessary emergency measures to prevent pollution disasters expanded to reduce river pollution, and other environmental harbor waters pollution of surface water bodies. This project contracting system by opening the same type of contract and marine pollution response capabilities to enhance the functionality, support and assistance for the implementation of the County of marine oil pollution emergency response operations, pollution prevention and clean-up work to expand the event, of effectively improve administrative efficiency and reduce administrative depletion and ecological damage.
