This project is to collect and organize the statistics from nine assigned rivers; the data consist of the basin environment, water quality, distribution of pollution, the emission list, and analyses between animal husbandry resources and water quality. Through continuous examination and discussion, current utilization and possible suggestions are represented; also, two evaluation meetings arose in the company of relevant authorities to review the progress of key monitoring stations as follows: (1) utilization of animal manure resource (2) reduction of the pollution (3) current status of the wastewater management plan and (4) its assessment scores. In addition, as the strengthening inspection is implemented toward animal husbandry, the outcome including the amount of fine and the number of inspections, samples as well as infractions will be scrutinized thoroughly via monthly rolling adjustments.
In order to improve the efficient disposal of the livestock manure though either the cooperation amid farms or centralized waste treatment, eight steering sessions took place in following places, inclusive of one in Taoyuan City, four in Yunlin County, two in Pingtung County, and one in Hualien County. Each session invited two committee members to conduct site surveys and give feedback to assist the re-examination work of which the cycle accounted for up to eight times.
Case studies referring to biogas slurry and residue as fertilizer have been completed, and two analytical evaluations related to actual irrigation and quality of underground water as well as soil have been examined all together. Plus, eleven townships have been selected as demonstration models for the purpose of optimizing resource utilization in local development; besides, competitions based on criteria for river assessment will be lifted in chosen districts to facilitate the development in both counties and cities and to better the surroundings.
On the other hand, the project has handled five agricultural and animal husbandry briefings; it has conducted an agricultural and animal husbandry survey to understand targets’ willingness and to lessen their concerns for the amount of irrigation and its efficiency. Besides, several meetings involving enterprises and livestock farms also were held, three seminars and ten consultation meetings included. The purpose of the meetings is (1) to reach consensus on the matter of promoting the resource utilization of animal husbandry manure, (2) to help participants apply for government subsidies, and (3) to prosper the usage of green electricity. By doing so, for one thing, relevant policies, known as appropriate recycle of livestock manure, can reach more publicity; for another, more resources can be used efficiently and less discharge of livestock waste into rivers.
Evaluate the operational effectiveness of the small modular anaerobic fermentation tank in Chiayi Livestock Farm, which has been subsidized by the Department for 109 years. The evaluation targets include: wastewater treatment efficiency, pollution reduction, and resource utilization benefits. And 110 years set up a single-stage anaerobic treatment facility test site to conduct performance analysis tests of 3 different residence times, including at least wastewater treatment efficiency, pollution reduction benefits, biogas production, copper and zinc changes in sediment, effluent water and sediment totality Phosphoric anhydride and total potassium oxide content data, and provide suggestions for the optimal operation mode respectively, and prepare operation and maintenance manuals to facilitate future application and promotion of livestock farms.
