History and objectives
The planning of the dam started already in 1979 and but was approved
Executive Yuan only in 2001. The stated goals of the dam are to
"improve both quantity and quality for the domestic water supply in
Yunlin County, reduce abstraction of ground water, slow down
subsidence and improve environmental quality". Land subsidence,
associated with groundwater extraction, has been a problem
particularly in Yunlin. Critics maintain that industry needs
motivated the dam.
The construction of the dam started in 2002. However, the
construction was delayed for three times due to environmental and
historical site preservation issues. Construction was completed
in December 2015. The dam was officiated on 2 April 2016 by President
Ma Ying-jeou when the sluice gate was closed and the dam started to
store water. Fi
Water to the dam is diverted from Zhuoshui River. The dam can store
up to 52.18 million m3 of water. The supply of water from Hushan
Reservoir and the nearby Jiji Weir to Yunlin will eventually reach
432,000 tons per day.
