rationing will still have to be carried out in Kaohsiung, the largest city in southern Taiwan, on March 20 as scheduled, a senior Water Resources Agency (WRA) official said Monday.

Under the rationing measure, water pressure will be reduced from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. each day, according to the agency under the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
