Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The advantage for water supply from seawater desalination lies on its flexibility and expansion as well as offering a stable and clean water source which made it possible as emerged water source In this study semi-structured qualitative interview was applied with grounded theory analysis to investigate how the stakeholders perceive the seawater desalination plant in Tainan city System dynamic model was employed to construct supply-demand model of Tainan city water resource to analyze how desalinated seawater affect the supply of water resource and management strategy in the future By using grounded theory five issues of major concern among the stakeholders were summarized as follows 1 The stakeholders wish to handle an integrated plan through national policy; and to 2 Implement the seawater desalination plant project; 3 The layout of the plan shall respect the public opinions and allow public participation; 4 Avoid causing environmental impact; 5 Expand water resource development and build up management measures The desalinated seawater hopefully will be able to balance supply and demand of the tap water at Tainan city in the future especially when the demand for industrial water increased or during the dry season the desalinated seawater supply may alleviate the pressure when industrial water is short The water resource management simulation may aim at industrial water supply and demand to build up the model to investigate the control measures and water resource management of the industrial water in details
