Why is Feitsui Reservoir located in New Taipei City but managed by Taipei City Government?

In the 1970’s, the Taipei metropolis suffered water shortages and the effective solution was to build a reservoir. Therefore, the Executive Yuan approved the construction and the reservoir was completed in June, 1987; most of the construction cost was raised and paid for by Taipei City Government. Therefore, Feitsui Reservoir’s management is supervised by Taipei City Government. Feitsui Reservoir and Nanshih Creek both share an important task of supplying public water to all of Taipei City and parts of New Taipei City.
