Description of Our Community: Changhua County is located in the central part of Taiwan Island, east of the Bagua Mountains and Nantou County border, the west side of the Taiwan Strait, the south with voiced Water Creek and Yunlin as the boundary, North to Big Belly Creek and Taichung City for the world. Changhua County terrain on the main plains, the north belongs to the Changhua Plain, the south is voiced Water Creek fan-shaped plains. Taiwan's high-speed rail north to the south, after Changhua through the Bagua Mountain, in Tanaka town to the west, after Creek State Township, Pitou Township, Zhutang After Township to the south voiced Water Creek into Yunlin County. These towns belong to the voiced Water Creek fan-shaped plain geology and the area with serious subsidence.
Project Description: The "Golden Corridor Project" is a government-driven scheme which is mainly intended to alleviate the short operating life of the high-speed railway due to subsidence. In these severe subsidence areas, most of them are agricultural regions. In recent years, because of the influence of extreme climate, it is becoming more and more serious for farmers to exceed pumping groundwater. In order to solve the problem, the government put forward the Golden Corridor plan. Farmers in Taiwan are mostly small farmers, and it is very difficult for them to increase costs or change their farming practices. In this scheme, subsidies and educational training are provided to allow farmers to change their farming methods more water-saving or to plant dry field crops to achieve the purpose of reducing groundwater. Our "Minglun team", through data collection, analysis, interviews, implementation, and so on, let everyone know the progress of the project, and also learn more High-tech agricultural irrigation technology. Let us also understand the current operation of the high-speed railway.
