The Erren River (Chinese: 二仁溪; pinyin: Èrrén Xī; Wade–Giles: Er4-jen2 Hsi1) is a river in Taiwan.[1] It flows through Tainan City and Kaohsiung City for 61 km.[2] The river originates from the Neimen District in Kaohsiung City and flows through seven districts before it enters Taiwan Strait. The river has suffered from pollution, although the situation has improved.[3]
