Water storage rate of major reservoirs in Taiwan

The implementation from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 the next day will not affect people's livelihood. Bamboo Branch has responded in advance

[Reporters Liao Jianing, Hong Youfang/Comprehensive Report] In view of the uncertainty of the follow-up rainfall, the Ministry of Economic Affairs held the third work report of the Central Disaster Response Center for this year's drought yesterday, announcing that Hsinchu County, Taichung (including North Changhua) will be Green light for water condition reminder, yellow light for decompression water supply when lowered.

The meeting report was presided over by Minister of Economic Affairs and Commander Wang Meihua, and after the meeting was presided over by Lai Jianxin, Director of Water Resources.

Lai Jianxin pointed out that in order to alleviate the impact of less spring rain, Hsinchu and Taichung (including North Changhua) turned to yellow lights for decompression water supply. During the time period from 10:00 pm to 6:00 the next day, decompression water supply will be implemented, which should not affect people's livelihood water supply.

The water saving rate of Bamboo Branch and Zhongke is more than 5%, and the control will not be strengthened

As for Zhuke and Zhongke in Hsinchu and Taichung, Lai Jianxin said that the water saving rate of the two parks has reached more than 5% independently, and will not strengthen control.

Wang Yongzhuang, director of the Zhuke Administration Bureau, explained that the Zhuke Park does not include Zhunan, Longtan and Yilan parks, and uses about 14.5% of water per day.

50,000 tons. The management bureau has urged manufacturers to save water independently since November last year and February this year. Starting from March 3, the top ten users will save 5% of their own water. Follow up with voluntary water saving of 5%.

He estimates that the rainy season in Taiwan will start from mid-May to mid-June, and hopes that the rainy season will become normal this year.

Nangao maintains reduced water supply orange lights but increases water conservation efforts

The orange lights in Tainan and Kaohsiung remain unchanged, but the water-saving efforts have been increased.

For non-industrial water users above 1,000 degrees per month, swimming pools, car washes, saunas and spas, etc., the water saving rate will increase from 10% to 15% starting from the 20th of this month.

Lai Jianxin added that 40% of the major water users in Kaohsiung are not up to standard in water conservation. The water company will issue a persuasion order. If the water saving rate is still not up to standard in the next follow-up meter reading, they will conduct lead sealing operations.

After the light signal is adjusted, Miaoli County maintains a green light for water regime reminders, adopts a similar yellow light pattern, and implements decompression water supply until 5:00 the next day when off-peak at night; Hsinchu County, Taichung City (including North Changhua) and Chiayi County The city has a yellow light for decompression water supply; Tainan City and Kaohsiung City maintain the "orange light for water supply reduction"; the rest of the counties and cities have blue lights for normal water supply.

Observe the water storage rate of major reservoirs in Taiwan. As of 8:00 last night, Shimen Reservoir was 42.

Three percent, emerald reservoir sixty-seven.

Five percent, Baoer Reservoir forty.

Six percent, Deji Reservoir forty-seven.

Four percent, Sun Moon Lake Reservoir fifty-eight.

9%, Baihe Reservoir 17%, Zengwen Reservoir 11%.

Four percent, Wushantou Reservoir forty-nine.

1% (the total storage capacity of Zengwen and Wushantou reservoirs is 96.57 million cubic meters).

The Deji Reservoir, which supplies water to Taichung City, received limited spring rain injection, and the water level plummeted.
