Review and Establishment of Warning Stages under Central Authority in Central, Southern, and Eastern Regions of Taiwan(2/2)

Warning water stage is the reference basis for the judgment on the activation of emergent measures; made by the center for typhoon and flood emergency and the authorities of river management. Since it is crucial to the civilians’ lives and properties, timely evaluation and revision of the warning water stages is necessary. First (95)year project aimed to evaluate the warning water stages of eight central government controlled rivers, namely the Jhuoshuei River, Puzih River, Bajhang River, Yanshuei River, Erren River, Agongdian River, Gaoping River, and Hualien River. This (96)year project directs at another eight central government controlled rivers, namely the Wu River, Beigang River, Jishuei River, Zengwun River, Donggang River, Sihchong River, Beinan River, and Siouguluan River. This research reaches seven main conclusions listed below:
