Summary
In order to maintain ecological environment, protect limited natural resources, promote the quality of life, and advance the use of all precious resources, we have some good achievements in both industrial circles, government official areas, and academic communities. The stream renovation will have a different impact on both traditional and ecological engineering, even though in the finish of the project the environment cannot be restored to its original condition. We require an evaluation system to effectively grasp the renovation impact and provide related information for engineers to make the appropriate decisions in selecting the construction system. In the completion time of the project, the ecological restoration condition is an important index to determinate the success of the ecological engineering method.

In this research, a GIS, ER Model, Database, WebGIS, SuperObjects and Windows environment will be used to develop a "Management Information System for the Stream Habitat within a Reservoir Watershed". In this system, the water quality, hydrology index, creature index, fish, aquatic insects, shrimp, shell, coherent algae, and micro organism of the streams in the system will be recorded. The referred index that can be used within a design period will be stored and can be queried from the system to achieve a better construction system.

With the help of this system, all biological information and referred index for streams can be recorded so the engineering designer can consider this data to exactly control the related ecological information around the project base. This will reduce the impact of the construction. The evaluation data can be used to adjust the design index for future projects. We can then effectively protect the earth resources and make the best use of the natural resources.
