This project is the continuing action of “Implementation, Assistance and Evaluation Project on River Pollution Control in Southern Taiwan, 2009,” sponsored by the Taiwan EPA. In order to review the treatment effect by stages, water quality of five major rivers and their tributaries was analyzed each month, including Ji-Shuei River, Yan-Shuei River, Er-Jen River, A-Gung-Dian River, and Love River. In addition, related government units were invited to join the coordination conferences for many times so that they can come up with effective strategies of river rehabilitation through united efforts.
In terms of water quality improvement of the “priority rivers”(mainly the reservoir in Penghu county) in southern Taiwan and the treatment target during the next four years, rolling managerial philosophy was utilized. Moreover, we assisted the EPA and local environmental protection bureaus (EPB) to complete the river evaluation, which results can help to understand the degree of the process and the promotion effect.
It is quite important for government to draw up strategies of the river restoration and efficient administrative management. Yet, the public participation can also provide a huge benefit. As such, a garden party in Taiye Wetland near Er-Jen River to promote the public understanding and participation in river restoration and improvement was held in Jiayi so that the ultimate goal “no oxygen deficiency, no odor problem and waterfront activation”, can eventually be achieved.
