This office was preceded by the Peikee Irrigation Association established by the merger of Tamsui and Keelung Irrigation Associations on January 1, 1975. The area managed includes the nine administrative districts of Tamsui, Sanzhi, Shimen, Jinshan, Wanli, Ruifang, Pingxi, Shuangxi, Gongliao under the jurisdiction of the New Taipei City Government. The main water source is surface water irrigation, with about 5,254 hectares of irrigated farmland, and in the main farmland is double cropped fields. On October 1, 2020, the Irrigation Association was restructured into a public agency, and the Peikee Management Office of the Irrigation Agency, Executive Yuan established; on August 1, 2023, the Ministry of Agriculture was established, and the office was re-designated the Peikee Management Office of the Irrigation Agency, Ministry of Agriculture.

In response to climate change and adaptation, and in conjunction with policy promotion such as expanding irrigation services, the daily work of the management office focuses on three key focal points, with colleagues and farmers working hand in hand to promote the sustainable development of farmland irrigation services.

  1. Provide high quality irrigation water in sufficient quantity, continuously update, improve and maintain irrigation and drainage facilities and expand storage facilities. The combination of network information communication and automatic control systems ensures the advisory committee and irrigation working group can effectively control the stability and quality of irrigation water needs.
  2. Gradual promotion of irrigation services based on local conditions to improve irrigation services for more farmers and farmland, in conjunction with the expansion of irrigation and related policies, including facility-friendly and eco-friendly facilities to increase farmland production.
  3. Improve financial status, properly utilize non-commercial land and buildings, actively clean up occupied land, encourage open source economy, increase financial income, and reasonably control expenditure to enhance sustainable operating capabilities and increase the Peikee farmland irrigation operation fund.
