Sized 16 ha, Lujiao Creek Wetlands were located at the convergence of Dahan River and its tributary Lujiao Creek, which was named after its antler-like shape. Formerly known as a landfill site, Lujiao Creek Wetlands were reconstructed by High Riverbank Construction Management Office, New Taipei City Government into manmade wetlands, where aquatic plants and natural purification methods were adopted to purify the water of Dahan River. This site is also the first on-site sewage treatment facility certified by the Environmental Protection Administration.

The kidney of Dahan River
Constructed based on the simulation of natural wetlands, Lujiao Creek Wetlands are located in the transition zone between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, allowing aquatic and terrestrial animals and amphibians to live. The urban sewage is filtered through the layers of the Wetlands’ ecological ponds, helping to ease river pollution, retain water and, in the case of heavy rainfall, regulate the water content of the land.
