    Taipei mayor advocates creating a ‘sponge city’ that can capture water (2015/03/26)

    Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je has proposed turning Taipei into a “sponge city” by creating roads and public plazas that can capture water. The plan hopes to prevent flooding, conserve water and cool down the city’s hot surfaces.

    A park office official lifts open a metal cover, revealing a storage bin half-filled with water. This “rainwater piggy bank” system, located in Guangci Park in Taipei, stores 18 cubic meters of rainwater that can be used to water plants and clean streets.

    A day or two after the rain ends, we quickly collect the accumulated water and use it so that it doesn’t overflow or serve as a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

    That system was developed under Taipei’s previous mayor Hau Lung-bin. Incumbent mayor Ko Wen-je wants to extend the system to the city’s roads and plazas to store rainwater and dissipate surface heat when it gets hot.

    We can’t let Taipei become like a cement pavement. Roads should be permeable and allow rainwater to seep into the ground. If the sun comes out, the water can evaporate. Simply put, it would turn Taipei into a sponge that can dissipate heat.

    Ko offered no details on how the road system would be designed. For now, “rainwater piggy banks” are planned for Daan Forest Park and Zhongqiang Park and expected to be completed by the end of the year.

    廣設"雨撲滿" 柯P:打造台北成"海綿城市"

    因應極端氣候,台北市長柯文哲喊出建立"海綿城市"的口號,打算將道路及廣場盡量改成透水性的鋪面,並擴大設立"雨撲滿",一方面儲水防洪,一方面也可以藉水冷散熱,降低都市熱島效應。

    公園處人員扳開大鐵網,底下的水量已經儲存到一半,這套叫做「雨撲滿」的系統,座落在廣慈公園,可以儲存18噸的雨水,回收拿來澆花、洗馬路。

    [[公園處南港所副主任 王克仁]]
    “下雨完之後,隔天或隔兩天,我們會趕快來把這邊的水給取用掉,讓這邊不會有積水,或是孳生蚊蠅的狀況”

    除了延續前市長郝龍斌龍留下來政策,柯市府還規劃把道路及廣場盡量改成透水性的鋪面,達到「雨天儲水,晴天散熱」的效果。

    [[台北市長 柯文哲]]
    “不要讓整個台北市都變成水泥鋪面,就是說透水路面,讓下雨的雨水可以滲到地下,如果有太陽出來可以蒸發回來,簡單講就是讓台北市變成水綿,散熱城市”

    不過確切的設計,柯文哲沒有細說。接下來大安森林公園跟中強公園,也會在年底前建設完成雨撲滿,打造成柯P心目中的「海綿城市」。
