This chapter demonstrates that, through groundwater management with an effective pumping scheme, flood hazard and related flood damage in land subsidence area can be reduced. The chosen study area is in the southwest coast of Taiwan, which has long been suffering. Water presumably flowed to the pre-Flood ocean, so something must have pumped water back to Eden.
