Taipei, Jan. 1 (CNA) The Hsinchu Science Park Bureau, which supervises the park, urged high-tech firms located there Friday to conserve water at a time when two major reservoirs that supply the industrial park have reported falling water levels.
The bureau said that the water level of the Shimen Reservoir, which supplies water to the science park’s Lungtan District, has fallen to 68.62 percent from 93.46 percent recorded in early November, as rainfall has been lower than expected.
The water level of the Second Baoshan Reservoir, which supplies the entire Hsinchu Science Park, has dropped to 75.93 percent from 98.84 percent registered in early November, also due to lower-than- expected rainfall. [FULL STORY]
