The New Taipei City government’s Water Resources Department warned residents in
Banciao district and the greater Taipei area to store water in advance as supplies will be disrupted beginning Saturday, reports said Thursday.
The water suspension will be carried out to make way for the installation of new transmission tower cables and other related equipment by Taiwan Power Co (Taipower) in Banciao, a process that will disrupt the district’s water grid as distributing pumps will be temporarily shut down.
Beginning Saturday at 7 a.m. through Sunday morning at 8, water supplies will be cut off for 25 hours in the districts of Yingge, Shulin, Taishan, Sanxia (excluding Henxi and Chenfu Communities) Hsinchuang, Wugu (partial areas), and Banciao’s Xicun Community. [FULL STORY]
