The Ministry of Economic Affairs held the second working meeting of the Disaster Emergency Response Team of the Ministry of Drought Economics on the 14th (14th) day. Benefiting from the help of the spring rain, it is estimated that the total reservoir water storage capacity will be 230 million tons. The unit made efforts to save water and eased the water situation. It was decided that the water quality of the Hsinchu area would be changed from yellow light decompression water supply to green light. The water condition will be tightly followed, and the follow-up will continue to be prudently responded to stabilize the supply of people's livelihood, agriculture and industrial water.
The Water Resources Department pointed out that during the rain period from March 5th to 11th, the reservoir management units and the farmland water conservancy associations will be in close contact and cooperation. The use of this wave of rainfall and the emphasis on the allocation of water will meet the needs of farmers for transplanting water. It is expected that the main irrigation areas will be in the middle of March. The transplanting and irrigation can be successfully completed, and the water diversion reservoir can be strengthened to meet the requirements of spring irrigation and overall water supply stability. In the industrial sector, the scientific park has achieved an independent water saving rate of 5%. In addition, the Water Resources Department has also closely contacted the Central Meteorological Bureau and the Ministry of National Defense to meet the meteorological conditions, and started five ground artificial precipitation enhancements and two aerial rainfall enhancement operations. improve.
According to the Water Resources Department, the water storage rate of the Baoshan-Baoshan No. 2 Reservoir in Hsinchu has risen from about 20% to nearly 50% before the rainfall. The agricultural part has continued to strengthen water-saving irrigation after entering the Honda period, and the industry has continued to promote independent water saving. Above; therefore, the Ministry of Economic Affairs decided at the meeting that the Hsinchu area will lift the decompression and water supply measures from now on, and the water conditions will be changed from yellow light to green light. The water in Kaohsiung area is mainly high-screen Xichuan water, which is affected by rainfall. The change is big and the uncertainty is high. It still needs careful attention. The water condition is slightly green.
The Water Resources Department stated that although the water situation has improved, it is still in the dry season, and it is still necessary to conservatively and prudently respond to the uncertainty of rainfall. The units are still required to continue to implement regional water supply dispatching, reservoir total control, agricultural water saving irrigation and industrial autonomous water saving measures. At the same time, the people are urged to save water and cherish water resources.
