Due to the established of Taitung Contury, accompanied with the economic development and growth, it brings serious environmental problems, especially for the air pollution. Besides, it affects the life quality of the neighborhood and causes a lot of protestation. In order to solve these problems, Environmental Protection Bureau of Taitung Contury initiated this project “Pollution Control Project for Construction engineering in Taitung Contury”. The purpose of this project is to find out the roots of the construction pollution and investigate on the public protest application. According to the findings from the investigation to restrain the air pollutants of construction, and to survey and monitor the emission sources of particles. Simultaneously, to improve the air quality and reduce the impact of the constructional engineering process to the surrounding dwellers, the proprietors of construction engineering are required to operate the air pollution control device properly.
This project is proceeded in one year from March of 2009 to February of 2010. It focus on assisting the EPB to strengthen checking and inspecting all building sites, pipes and road works for improving the pollutions. We make lists to manage monitorial sites, and strengthen the knowledge for preventing pollutions of building sites by declared documents and forums. In the period of this project, it monitors 1,994 sites. The amounts of inspections are 1,436 times. Not only making lists by routine inspections but also holding 1 forum to announce the laws and regulations. It counsels building sites to clean around roads, they are cleaned for 702.09 Km in amount and tested by particles and oil to support (8 times of TSP test, and 20 times of oil test).After all works of pollution control, this project reduce flying TSP for 419 tones, the rate of reduction is 38.75%. By the emission in these years, it’s the best achievements. The rate of reduction raises year by year to provide the results of EPB’s controlling strategies.
