Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je went on an impromptu inspection of the city’s water
treatment plant Wednesday after having held a brief discussion with colleagues from the Taipei Water Department over lunch.
Ko later posted on his Facebook page saying he was still worried after having discovered that the Taipei Water Department is still getting murky water from the Nanshih River.
The mayor urged the Central government to take a decisive action to solve the Nanshih River problem, or the city will otherwise have to deal with turbid water after the next typhoon sweeps across Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
