The Environmental Protection Administration of ROC (ROCEPA) is seeking cost-effective alternatives to meet the drinking water standards. The alternatives include promulgating more stringent regulations to protect the drinking water sources and/or constructing advanced water treatment plants to comply with the requirements of drinking water standards. The objectives of this research were first to develop a rationale for selecting representative water quality parameters and then determining their respective contaminant level (or regulated value) for the source water quality standards in Taiwan, ROC. The implementation plans are proposed to achieve the goal of safe drinking water in Taiwan.
