TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Water Resources Agency (WRA) said yesterday that it expects water
supplies across Taiwan to stabilize by the end of September.
Over the weekend, Typhoon Chan-hom filled the Shihmen Reservoir to 90-per cent capacity, WRA Chief Secretary Lai Chien-hsin said yesterday.
Lai said the WRA is set to adjust its water supply monitoring indicator in neighbouring regions from “green,” which signals a tight supply, to “blue,” indicating a stable supply.
Prior to the typhoon’s arrival on June 8, the WRA under the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) had already lifted water use restrictions island-wide, but had not adjusted the water supply monitoring lights from green to blue for all Taiwan areas. [FULL STORY]
