Environmentalists give the EPA sixty days to stop Hushan

Taipei-May 24th

An alliance of environmental advocates demanded that the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) halt the Hushan Reservoir project within sixty days or face legal action.

After a press conference, the alliance of environmental advocates, including Lin San-chia, chair of Environmental Law Committee of the Taipei Bar Association, and Environmental Impact Assessment Committee member and director of Wild at Heart Legal Defense Association, Robin Winkler, marched to the offices of the EPA and presented the EPA's Fan Da-vid with a letter of demands giving the EPA 60 days to halt the Hushan Reservoir project or face legal action.
