In 1972, President Chiang Ching-kuo instructed that a water corporation be set up to develop and unified public water supply system island-wide. Taiwan Water Corporation was inaugurated by the Taiwan Provincial Government in 1974.
Former chairman Hsu Hsiang-kun was arrested on bribery and corruption charges in September 2007, and indicted in August 2014. Hsu had contracted Kintech Technology Company to expand two water purification facilities in 2002. The project deadline was extended twice to November 2003 and March 2005. Hsu then accepted NT$5 million to grant Kintech a third extension to September 2007, by which time the project was completed.
