Taipei, Taiwan Water Corp. announced on Wednesday that the water supply to an estimated 350,000 households in Tainan will be suspended for 47 hours starting at 8 a.m. on Feb. 26 due to the routine replacement of old water pipelines in the southern city.
The state-owned utility said the water supply to 16 administrative districts in the city will be completely cut off and water pressure will be reduced in seven other districts during the 47-hour period from 8 a.m. on Feb. 26 to 7 a.m. on Feb. 28.
The suspension in water supply is necessary to allow for the replacement of old sections of water pipes in an area that is also undergoing road expansion, Taiwan Water said.
The 16 districts are: West Central, North, East, Anping, Danei, Shanshang, Zuojhen, Lungchi, Guanmiao, Shanhua, Hsinshih, Xinhua, Yongkang, South, Gueiren, and Rende.
Residents of these districts are being urged to store water, and Taiwan Water will also have 103 retrieving stations in place during the two-day period. Locations of the stations can be found at https://wateroff.water.gov.tw
