President Tsai Ing-wen has sought to impress upon the public the importance of
water management. The issue forms a major part of the government’s so-called forward-looking infrastructure plan.
On Sunday, the president posted on her Facebook page about the government’s water management project, with the message “take care of water, take care of your family.”
The post said that Taiwan receives abundant rainfall every year, from the “plum rains” in spring to typhoons in late summer and autumn. Excess of rain can be a problem, bringing the danger of flooding and landslides. But at other times the country has problems of water shortages. Siltation in the country’s reservoirs is also a serious issue, the post said. [FULL STORY]
