[Reporter Wu Junfeng/Tainan Report] The water situation in Tainan is severe. The Zengwen Reservoir, the largest in the country, has not brought significant rainfall due to the approach of the front. In order to provide a stable supply of public water, water has been continuously released to the Wushantou Reservoir for storage. The drainage operation came to an end tonight, which caused the original single-digit water storage rate to continue to drop, and as of 11:00 p.m., it had dropped to 6.4%.
According to the plan of the Southern District Water Resources Bureau of the Water Resources Department, the water release and diversion work of the Zengwen Reservoir will end tonight, and the current water level is still over 190 meters.
