Exquisitely True, Good, and Beautiful” Treatment Works Planning & Discovering the Beauty of Taipei's Water Ecology

2016-05-10

 

  The Taipei Special Water District is located in the southeastern tip of the Greater Taipei Area, with a total area of about 717 square kilometers. Its vast scope occupies one third of the New Taipei City administrative region and it is the main water source supply in Taipei. In response to the water source policy implemented over the past two decades, 97% of the area within the jurisdiction of the Taipei Special Water District has been designated as a security protection area. The various developmental projects and land utilization are in strict compliance with the regulations, while the regional environment and ecology maintenance have achieved good results. However, due to the impact of the extreme climate in recent years, certain geology, topography, and natural environmental conditions within the Water Source Special District have worsened, especially the concentrated heavy rain which has caused surface sand and river slopes to be prone to erosion and affected the water quality. Therefore, river treatment work continues to be underway in order to maintain the water quality at the source within the jurisdiction and the sustainable development of the ecological environment.

  The Taipei Water Management Office, WRA conscientiously adheres to the purpose of cherishing water resources and protecting water quality and quantity, attaches great importance to the maintenance of the ecological environment of the Water Source Special District. This year, prior to the planning and design of the “2014 Beishih No. 1 River Treatment Works”, the “2014 Beishih River Ecology Survey and Monitoring Plan” was conducted to gain an insight into construction-induced ecological environment changes at the time of construction and reduce the impact on the water ecology at the work area prior, during, and after construction.

  Larval fish gathering and inhabiting the slow-flowing water tussocks by the shore within the work area were filmed, and Gobiidae eggs hatching were photographed and captured on film. The pictures attached in this article are precious shots taken on the site. In addition to letting everyone understand the devoted efforts of the Taipei Water Management Office, WRA in protecting and maintaining the water

source, water quality, water quantity, and ecological environment within the catchment area, information on the importance and necessity of “understanding and cherishing natural resources” is also shared with all.

  According to the Ecological Survey and Monitoring Plan, after completing a pre-construction survey, the Taipei Water Management Office, WRA still adheres to the goals of reducing the impact on the water ecology at the work area and avoiding interference with fish spawning and migration, and shall actively consult with constructors, adopt uninterrupted water supply for the work area water sources, bar screen facilities, settling ponds, fish avoidance facilities, and other measures, and gain an insight into the actual situation of the fish water habitat within the work area during the survey period through underwater photography technology. 
 
 

The current monitoring results are indeed encouraging. The Taipei Water Management Office, WRA has carried out construction through the above plan. The survey results of the April construction show that most fish species still inhabit the work area, thus indicating the technique has brought down the impact on the water environment to a minimum. In addition, after competing the main vein rectifier construction, in July, fish species including round snouts, Taiwan striped barbs, sinibrama macrops, carps, and so on were found to have begun inhabiting the artificial reefs created according to the original design using the river bed’s existing concrete blocks and large rocks.
