WRA orders water rationing

First-phase water rationing is to be implemented in Tainan and Chiayi County from Wednesday, as heavy rains over most of the nation on Friday were insufficient to replenish water supplies there. State-run Taiwan Water Corp (台灣自來水) said it will carry out the measure as ordered by the Water Resources Agency (WRA). First-phase water rationing began in Kaohsiung on March 20, and it began in Taoyuan and Hsinchu, as well as New Taipei City’s Linkou (林口), Banciao (板橋) and Sinjhuang (新莊) districts, early last month. Under the measure, water pressure is reduced between 11pm and 6am, Taiwan Water said, adding that government agencies and state-run companies will be barred from turning on fountains, watering plants and washing the exterior of their buildings with water from the mains supply.    [FULL  STORY]
