Taiwan water issue

In Taiwan, we don't have problem of water consumption, for we always have typhoons in summer and they bring lots of rain to us. Though it caused damages to agriculture, it also brings us natural water.

Our problem is water pollution, especially in southern Taiwan. Industry effects water, and we don't have safe drinking water. We use water filters, miniral water or buy the water from water station.

 

Water station is very popular in southern Taiwan. It may be cheaper than a filter. It is said they are all from spring water in the mountains. When we came back from Rome, there's a breaking news---only few water stations are qualified, that means most of them are illegal, they sold water from the piped water. It is like a bomb in my city, for so many people use it every day.

 

From the other side, the water from the faucet can be drunk now, it's a great improvement, for nobody got hurt from drinking it.... The government emphasized we can drink the piped water, but nobody believed. Now, it's the truth. we can drink it directly.  

 

The salesmen always sell many kinds of water filters, and all of them have different functions. That's the way to promote their business. You can ask any Taiwanese, do they use water fileters at home?  Even the school use it...
