The scope includes the construction and transfer of recycled water treatment facilities and distribution pipelines, as well as the operation of a sewerage treatment plant and a water recycling plant. The project is the first case of wastewater reclamation and reuse in Taiwan. The plant will provide 45,000 tons of recycled water every day for the Kaohsiung area after its completion.
