Taipei, May 8 (CNA) Stricter water rationing measures could take effect in
Tainan as soon as late May, as the water level of a main reservoir supplying water for the city has recently fallen to a new low.
As of 6 a.m. Friday, the water level at Nanhua Reservoir (南化水庫) in Tainan stood at 157.60 meters, equivalent to just 16.41 percent of its overall capacity.
To cope with the situation, the government is currently supplying water for Tainan via Zengwen Reservoir (曾文水庫), Wushantou Reservoir (烏山頭水庫) and Jiaxian Weir (甲仙攔河堰), as well as reducing the water supplied by Nanhua Reservoir, Water Resources Agency official Lin Yuan-peng (林元鵬) said Friday in a meeting on water rationing measures.
