On regular declared and modified monitoring document of gas station, 1209 documents were examined. 477 gas stations on-site verification work were carried and all field records were uploaded to “Soil and Groundwater Information Management System”. Pollution improvement, supervision patrol work of Control Site was conducted once every 2 months, 671 Control Sites were being patrol and supervised, all field records were uploaded to “Soil and Groundwater Information Management System”. 20 Control Sites were verified and 20 sites were investigated. Budget of NT$ 801,730 (without tax) from EPA and NT$1,203,968 (without tax) from Tainan City for public nuisance dispute and emergency response work category was used in sites pollution verification work.
