The Yunlin County continued implementation of each air pollution control program, for achieve the purpose of improvement of air quality.
It uses the Air Pollution Control Fund effectively and the projects have executed so regularly. It was by the team of "2013 Comprehensive Management Project of Air Quality Maintenance”. This project through the management and review the progress of all air pollution control plan. It’s in the grasp the air quality conditions of the county; Ensure the air pollution control will achieve the target.
To analyze the situation of all exhaust pollution in the county, it makes a plan appropriate for the air pollution control of the county, and reached the target with well air quality.
The analysis of environmental burden and air quality during 2008 to October, 2014 has been completed. According to the statistics, poor air quality days were from 38 days in 2008 down to 16 days in 2013. There were 5 poor air quality days of March, 2014, the air quality worse than last year. The index pollutants were suspended particulates and Ozone. Compared with the past, poor air quality days of 2013 and 2014 have increased, the more typhoons affecting in 2013, resulting the Jhuo-shuei River riverbed was destroyed. And the suspended particulates will effects the county.
The good air quality days in 2008 were 225 days and were increased to 244 days in 2012, and the good air quality days in 2013 were 231 days. As of March, 2014, the good air quality days were 28 days. In 2013 and 2012 the number of days compared to the station, 2013 Good day slightly lower proportion than the 2012, mainly by transport and Jhuo-shuei River outside influence, although the effectiveness of the control measures displayed, but should strengthen controls.
In this project, the management of project effectiveness and the tracking of the pollution reduction achievement were conducted based on the control objectives in "2013 Air Pollution Control Plan". And, most indexes have reached the target; in the evaluation of air pollution control plan, the results have improved compared with the early stage of project execution. The correctness, reasonableness and consistency of the information were significantly improved, although the management of implementation progress in some projects needs to be strengthened to avoid the progress delay.
There are 16 programs undergo an annual inspection , The higher scores are " The Controlling and Improving Plan For Odorous Pollution and Outdoor burning " (95.9 points) and " The project of enhancing street dust sweeping and washing the street " (95.7 points), it is due to submit the document early, and these are completeness, accuracy and consistency; The lower scores is " Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Plan " (91.8 points) it get lower scores on the EPA mid-term review.
About the progress of each project, it is due to the rainy season from June, the part of project backward, it was improved completely on August and September, and we raise some suggestion:
(1) The backward due to the climate (rainy day or a typhoon day), and with other units (such as detects or factory), with the audit committee ... etc.
(2) We suggest advancing the schedule by one day or prepared the backup solution.
(3) To control the project schedule effectively, when the plan less than 80% of the schedule of the progress or more than five terms backward, we check the progress every two weeks, until it reaches the target so far.
We have completed 3 session external audits meeting. The committee to make suggestion for each project in those meeting. The Committee requested those plan should strengthen internal control and strengthen personnel training .Islands industrial zone control plan check has completed four rounds of 18 times the query plan, meeting members' suggestions for each plan has achievement reply to members, checking compliance with the relevant provisions.
Furthermore, in order to improve air pollution control and public satisfaction, we held 6 press conferences. There were ten news media attended and the press conference was published on the Liberty News, United Daily News, and the China Times. Furthermore, it was broadcast on local TV.
To control Yunlin fine suspended particles (PM2.5) conditions effectively, not only use EPA air quality monitoring station data analysis, but also summary these results of the Yunlin County Environmental Protection Bureau. Besides, we collect domestic and foreign literature, also use the way from EPA for the control of (PM2.5) in the planning and practice. In order to enhance public understanding of fine particles suspended. We hold activity twice in Douliou city. Let public to prevention in poor air quality day.
In order to improve the communication of each project, we have set up "Low Carbon Group" and “Yunlin Remote Island Industry Park Group", and held a meeting weekly. Low Carbon group has held meeting for 11th, Yunlin Remote Island Industry Park group held group meeting for 10th. In the meeting, the targets and work progress were discussed. In order to improve the efficiency of the management of Yunlin Remote Island Industry Park, we proposed an integration mechanism for Yunlin Remote Island Industry Park, and coordinated the work items and the efficiency of the management among each project during the execution of this project.
We through the media to informed the public of air quality conditions and all kinds of preventive measures quickly when the county encountered sandstorms, serious deterioration of air quality or air pollution. Until now the cable television broadcast of twenty second time, and radios 300 times, to guidance low-carbon diet and dust hazard notice.
