The Zhuoshui River, also spelled Choshui or Jhuoshuei River, (Chinese: 濁水溪; Hanyu Pinyin: Zhuóshuǐ Xī; Tongyong Pinyin: Jhuóshuěi Si; Wade–Giles: Cho2-shui3 Hsi1; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Lô-chúi-khoe) is the longest river in Taiwan. It flows from its source in Nantou County up to the western border of the county, subsequently forming the border between Yunlin County and Changhua County, with a total length of 186 km (116 mi).
The river serves as an unofficial boundary between the north and south of Taiwan.
The Zhuoshui River environment has in recent years been seriously degraded both by the construction of a dam across the river at Jiji and by the ongoing activities of the concrete industry.
