Taipei, Aug. 14 (CNA) Taiwan Water Corporation said Friday that residents in some parts of Xinzhuang, Tucheng, Banqiao, Luzhou and Zhonghe districts in New Taipei should store water to prepare for supply cuts on Saturday.
Heavy rains in the past few days have increased the turbidity of water from Nanshi River, one of the main sources of water in Taipei.
That has reduced the amount of water available to the capital city, decreasing the amount it can supply to neighboring New Taipei, the department said. [FULL STORY]
