The spring ploughing has been carried out in various places. The Water Resources Department has used the spring rain brought by the eastward movement of the Yunyu District in southern China. All reservoir management units are required to control the effluent of the reservoir and fully support the spring water for agricultural use. In particular, it cooperates with the farmland water conservancy associations in Taoyuan, Hsinchu, Miaoli and Taichung to strengthen irrigation water efficiency, assist farmers to grasp the natural rainfall and transplant the fields, and use precious water resources in the most efficient way.
According to the Water Resources Department, this wave of rainfall mainly falls to the north of the central part. It is of great help to the drought caused by the rain during the dry season. The Water Resources Department held the second working meeting of the drought emergency response team on March 6. In response to the water regime and the rapidly changing spring climate, various contingency measures are taken to strengthen the response. The water resources bureaus of each district are required to cooperate with the reservoir management units and the water conservancy association to use the rainfall opportunities of this wave to forecast the rainfall area and rainfall according to the meteorological forecast. In the actual rainfall situation, the maneuvering and careful adjustment of the water output of the reservoir can save the water in the reservoir and avoid the waste of precious water resources.
The Water Resources Department stated that it has cooperated with the Central Meteorological Administration and the Ministry of National Defense for four artificial precipitation enhancements in accordance with meteorological conditions, including mastering the climatic conditions in the morning of (6) morning in the Baoshan No. 2 Reservoir and the Yongheshan Reservoir catchment area. Do not give up any opportunity to increase rainfall, and cooperate with all units to grasp the opportunity of this wave of rainfall, actively divert water to the reservoir under the demand of spring ploughing, and once again appeal to all walks of life to save water together. Water inconvenience may occur during the passage of dry water.
