Water price increase not sensible

By Chang Yen-ming 張炎銘

At the same time, Taiwan Water should fulfill its role as a supplier of water and increase the production of clean water, improve piping and reduce leakage.

The company must avoid a situation where nothing is done when water turbidity rises due to torrential rainfall, or where there are water shortages due to an inability to transport water, even though there is sufficient supply. Once Taiwan Water meets its responsibilities, adjustments to water prices will follow automatically.

Chang Yen-ming is a former director of the Taichung branch of the Water Resources Agency.
