◎ Models Installed：LA Series - Submersible Axial flow Pumps
A detention basin is a reserved area, excavated and located on, or adjacent to river, lake and bay for flooding prevention. A detention basin works like a temporary large scale reservoir which can store flood water for a limited period of time.
This case is reported in Dunggang Village, Budai Township of Chiayi County. The Village become below sea level because of land subsidence and raising sea level.
