  Taiwan's water resources works must direct their efforts in two directions, after entering the twenty-one century:

"Cultivate the natural environment, managing good quality rich and renewable water resources."

"manage the rivers and seas, protect and create a diversified natural water environment."

  Our bureau has devised a strategy in accordance with the integrated planning of the drainage area to train Toucian and other rivers, which accepts the importance of training and managing ecological engineering and environmental melting, n the expectation of ensuring "Ecological rivers" & "Sustainable coasts", realizing that the human and water environments depend on each other.
