Taipei City to Create a List of Watertight Gate Manufacturers – Application Deadline Extended to April 14

Worker installing watertight gate Taipei City Government’s Hydraulic Engineering Office (HEO) has become the first government agency in the country to create the List of Subsidized Watertight Gate Manufacturers for Privately Owned Buildings in Taipei City.

Currently, watertight gate manufacturers are being invited to join the list, and the application deadline will be extended to April 14, 2020. Link to the application form: http://bit.ly/38eMbFN.

According to the HEO, although other municipalities also provide their citizens with subsidies to install watertight gates, they have to look for watertight gate manufacturers on their own and apply for subsidies from the relevant authorities. On the contrary, the HEO has thoughtfully created the manufacturers’ list for the public, and it is the first government agency to do so!

The HEO will provide citizens with an information pack on watertight gate manufacturers so that they no longer have to look for manufacturers themselves during the subsidy application process. Instead, they can effortlessly choose a suitable manufacturer from the list.

The agency’s Sewage Engineering Section pointed out that since applications began on February 14, 2020, private manufacturers have indicated they need time to understand the implementation principles and application process.

To include more aspiring manufacturers, the HEO decided to extend the application deadline on March 14, 2020, by a month to April 14, hoping to encourage more watertight manufacturers to submit their applications. Link to the application form: http://bit.ly/38eMbFN.
