Wetlands of Regional Importance

Banping Lake Wetland

In 1997, after termination of Banpingshan's mining rights, Kaohsiung City (KHC) Government further requested that the cement company, which had been mining the area for over 30 years, undertake soil and water conservation plans. In accordance with the plan, the cement company has planted vegetation on the hill and constructed five detention and sedimentation ponds of approximately 8 ha in total. Under KHC's new unban management strategy -- "KHC wetlands ecological greenway" -- these detention ponds have become artificial wetlands, serving as flood detention ponds and providing habitats for aquatic insects. Presently, the wetland is managed by Wetlands Taiwan.
