Although there is a little rain at present, the water conditions have not yet eased. Taichung City continues to use the policy ” Supply 5, Stop 2″ for water supply. The Municipal Water Resources Bureau has installed the first small mobile water purification device on the construction site at the intersection of Wenxin South Road and Wenxin South 5th Road in Nantun District of this city on April 6 this year. Another 9 small mobile water purification device will also be installed in the construction sites of Dali District, North District, East District, Wuri District, Longjing District, Xitun District, South District and Shalu District before April 30. A total of 10 small mobile water purification devices are installed, each of which can produce about 15 tons of household water per day. The water quality can reach the drinking water standard, but please boil it before drinking. Do not drink directly for your own sake.
Director Fan Shiyi of the Water Resources Bureau stated that during the district water supply period, the groundwater extracted with small mobile water purification device can be used to provide the public with an additional way to use water for household use. Taking into account the water quality, water volume, site size and water intake lines of the construction site, the Water Resources Bureau allocated small mobile water purification equipment to 9 different administrative districts to make it more convenient for more people to use, and also appealed to the public following the water fetching instructions and remember to save water.
Under the coordination of the Municipal Urban Development Bureau, the person in charge of the construction site at the installation location of the small mobile water purification device is willing to provide equipment installation space and pay the full amount of electricity generated by the operation of the device, so that the small mobile water purification device can be installed smoothly.
The Water Resources Bureau also claimed that in order to reduce the impact of water restrictions on people’s livelihoods and industries, the city government is actively looking for alternative water sources. The Water Resources Bureau has announced that all legal groundwater wells in this city will extend their water rights before the end of June this year, with no restrictions on the scope of use and pumping volume. Six water resource recycling centers in Futian, Shigangba, Taichung Port, Shuinan, Wenshan, Liming, etc. will be opened for the public and industries to use the discharged water. The daily water supply can reach 106,000 tons, but the discharged water can only be used for irrigation, flushing toilets, cleaning the floor and other non-human contact water. As for the cleaner water source, in addition to 10 small mobile water purification devices to provide people’s livelihood water, the first large-scale RO-level water purification equipment has also been completed in the Shuinan Water Resources Recovery Center. Two more will be expanded, and three will be added to the Wenshan Water Recycling Center. It is expected to be completed before May 30. A total of six will provide 3,000 tons of industrial water per day. We should think about the suffering of no water when there is water. It is everyone’s responsibility to cherish water resources.
