[Reporter Xie Jieyu/Report from Nantou] The water level of Sun Moon Lake Reservoir dropped sharply due to the drought. Yuchi Township Office of Nantou County and Taipower Company also took the opportunity to carry out the dredging work of Yidashao sewer (or flood control drainage). After a week of hard work, the water level was successfully completed. The entire line of the queue will be cleared, so that the shops and residents in the Ita Shao business district will be protected from the threat of flooding.

Liu Qifan, mayor of Yuchi Township, said that the width and height of Yidashao sewers range from one.

Eight meters to two.

The distance is two meters, which can allow the entry and exit of small-scale soil pilers and other equipment. The main road leads from Zhongzheng Road in the business district to the lakeside, and the branch leads to Zhuganxi at the junction of Tannan Village, Xinyi Township. Taking advantage of the low water level of Sun Moon Lake Reservoir Opportunity, clear the silt, soil and sand in the sewer out of the channel, and then take over the cleaning and transportation by Taipower Company.

The Sun Moon Lake National Scenic Area Management Office also stated that if the water level of the Sun Moon Lake Reservoir drops below 740 meters, the operations of the four major public piers including Chaowu, Shuishe, Xuanguang, and Ita Thao will indeed be affected. The water level changes, so that we can take countermeasures in the first place, and I also hope that God will soon make a heavy rain in the catchment area of ​​Sun Moon Lake Reservoir, so as to relieve the urgent need.
