Caption

The Shanwei Dyke is at the mouth of the Kaoping Stream in the Linyuan District. Whenever typhoon approaches, plenty of floating timbers would float downstream and fill the Shanwei Dyke, the Jhongyun Fish Port, and the Shanwei Fish Port. It caused destruction to the fisheries industry; therefore, measures were implemented to reduce the number of floating timbers after typhoons. Having said so, the huge pool of floating timbers beneath the blue sky is quite a magnificent view.

汕尾堤防位於林園區高屏溪出海口,當颱風過境,大批從高屏溪上游漂流而下的木材,隨即佈滿汕尾堤防、中芸漁港及汕尾漁港,造成漁航道淤積之現象,清淤作業長達數月,漁民深受其苦,後以纜索阻隔漂流木入港,降低災後損失,成效頗佳。大小漂流木堆砌綿延數里,映襯著藍天白雲,形成另類壯觀美景。
