Short summary
Pingtung Plain, Taiwan is formed by Quaternary alluvial fan material from three main rivers. The uncontrolled development of groundwater resources has led to land subsidence. Thus, one of important solutions of land subsidence, named the Benefited Water Reuse from Storm Water Project, was then implemented in 1997. The project can improve and mitigate land subsidence as well as formulate water banks for adapting and managing aquifer recharge.
