Soil Management

  • 2009
  • Environmental policy

      The Soil and Groundwater Pollution Remediation Act (hereafter referred to as “this Act”) was promulgated by presidential order on February 2nd, 2000. During the same year, Environmental Protection Administration also followed the order of Executive Yuan and started promoting the Soil and Groundwater Pollution Remediation Action Project so as to ensure effective division of work and proper implementation amongst various supervising units in the effort to integrate promotion plans for the next several years.


      There are 1,800 discovered control sites and 11 remediation sites in Taiwan in 2007. However, some problems still exit in the framework of current soil pollution management: unidentified risk assessment on the transformation of control sites into remediation sites, unclear remediation goals, methods of prevention from pollution on unpolluted soil, integration with the Waste Disposal Act and Resource Recycling Act, lack of incentives on participation of polluted soil remediation and reuse by private sectors, lack of sufficient data regarding the quality of soil and groundwater in Taiwan and so on.



      CTCI Foundation holds the soil and groundwater pollution remediation in Taiwan as a major research topic by comparing with the practice abroad to help improve domestic practice and method and offering a more objective view for policy makers.
