MAA recognizes both the importance of dams as structures to provide power, flood control, and irrigation, as well as act as raw water supplies for rural and urban needs. Safety evaluations, including field inspection, stability & stress analysis, seismic analysis and preparation of emergency action plan, conducted by MAA ensure the proper operation of dams, including Guishan Hydro Power Plant and its Luohao and Ayu Dams, Yunghuoshan Reservoir, Chipan Dam, and also Luliao Creek Reservoir in Taiwan.


In the case of Taiwan’s Fengshan Reservoir, MAA was able to carry out extensive investigations and detected a leakage underlying gravel and calcite. MAA was able to prepare remedial measures and design for a cutoff wall for the Water Resources Agency to resolve this issue.
