Taiwan Yunlin Irrigation Association

IMG_4777

Taiwan has a rainy season which will start around June and a dry season which we are in now.  However, agriculture and industry need water year round.  The role of the TYIA is to manage the water resource for the area.

They do this through the collection of surface water during the rainy season and supplementing with ground water resources throughout the year.

A series of canals that can direct water throughout the county are managed from several locations. The picture of the model shows the many canals.  More than 70% of the water goes to agricultural production.

The visitor center where we learned about the TYIA also had some great agricultural artifacts.

  1. Interesting management of water. The US could use some models for directing H2O where it’s needed and not needed.
