TWC awarded the 2014 Operational Merit Award
The Taiwan Water Corporation (TWC, ) was awarded with the 2014 Operational Merit Award by the Public Construction Commission of the Executive Yuan, as announced by the commission on June 2 to commend the company’s efforts in providing quality and safer public construction.
The award was issued due to the TWC in Banqiao’s excellent performance, when citizens had reported a fire hydrant as a hazardous obstacle, as it was situated on the pavement. After obtaining consent from the Fire Department in New Taipei City, the TWC quickly removed the fire hydrant and transformed it into an underground fire hydrant.
The TWC applied for construction consent with the Zhonghe District Office, and finished the operation within two days, much to the approval of the citizen who had reported the case and the commission.
The TWC has worked closely with the government to improve communications and contact with residents. Civilians can report public construction problems via the Internet, toll- free number 0800-009-609 or 1910, email, fax, mobile app or local TWC branch services.
