TSMC Interested in Dorm Complex Land for Fab? 台積電高雄廠傳改設中油宿舍區 居民恐慌

There are reports that TSMC is displeased with the remediation of a former CPC Corporation refinery in Kaohsiung and has set its sights on land housing CPC Corporation dormitories, sending residents into a panic.


This is CPC Corporation's Hongyi dormitory complex in Kaohsiung's Nanzih District. People who live there only have superficial rights, and have long clamored for CPC Corporation to sell the land to them. According to recent reports, TSMC is displeased with the remediation progress of the plot of land that is set to house its new fab, and would like to establish the fab on the land housing the dormitories. Residents are panicking and worrying that their superficial rights will be taken away.

Hsu Chia-chih, President, Houjin Dormitory Self-Help Association: “All they did was dig up the land and then leave everything out in the open. Then they said the remediation was finished. That's how they did it. Is that proper? We're not asking for much. We just want to be settled.”

Feng Ching-jung, Chief, Hongyi Borough, Nanzih District, Kaohsiung City: “We asked the city government to allow all of Nanzih District's borough chiefs to jointly supervise this remediation process.”

CPC Corporation employees, retired employees, and residents formed a self-help association. They held a press conference on Jan. 20 along with elected representatives. They questioned if the remediation would be completed on schedule and completed safely, and asked for related information to be made public. They also said the process should be supervised, and urged the Kaohsiung City Government not to sacrifice residents to benefit a corporation. The city government responded that these were only rumors and the remediation is proceeding on schedule and the land can be handed over in April or May.

Chang Jui-han, Director, Kaohsiung City Env. Protection Bureau: “It's currently underway for the 6-2, 5-2, and 1-2 sections. We should be able to achieve our goal for the soil restoration work for the three sections of 3-1, 3-2, and 3-3.”

The city's Environmental Protection Bureau said all the necessary protective and covering measures during the remediation work have been carried out to ensure that no further contamination will occur. Air and water quality monitoring equipment have also been set up near the site, and readings will be posted on its website. It will set up information boards and news displays at various sites so that residents can stay informed.

 

 

 

 

一棟棟透天坐落在高雄楠梓的中油宏毅宿舍區,只有地上權的當地居民,長期向中油爭取買地,但近日卻傳出,台積電對正在整治的中油高雄煉油廠舊址沒信心,想改在宿舍區設廠,讓居民全緊張起來,擔心連地上權都被收回。

後勁勞宅自救會長徐嘉志表示:「土挖起來之後,沒有遮蓋,全部曝曬,然後就說整治完了,這個像話嗎?眼見為憑像話嗎?我們要的不多,一個安身立命的家。」

高雄楠梓宏毅里長馮靖絨指出:「我們要求市府,要讓我們所有楠梓區的里長能夠共同去監督,這個整治的過程。」

中油員工、退休員工和居民籌組自救會,20日在民代陪同下開記者會,質疑整治進度是否能如期、並安全地完成,要求公開整治資訊、接受檢驗,也希望市府不要為了財團、犧牲居民。市府澄清,換地是不實謠言,整治進度正常,預計4、5月就可交地。

高市環保局長張瑞暉:「6-2區跟5-2區,還有1-2區的部分,目前都在持續進行當中,所以目前看起來,我們在3-1 3-2 3-3這3個區域,目前的土壤整治工作,應該是達到我們預期的目標。」

環保局強調,整治時已做好都有做相關防護、遮蔽,確保不會造成2次汙染,中油高煉廠附近也設有空品、水質等監測設備,數據都會在網站公告,後續會在當地監測車、宮廟等設看板及跑馬燈,讓居民能隨時了解整治狀況。
