It’s raining in Taoyuan

Today in Taoyuan City it was raining all day, it was even seen on top of the Shimen Reservoir. There are 10 rainfall reservoirs in the area, and they were active until 3 pm today. They said that the total rainfall was 18mm in the Shimen reservoir. But more observing stations had said that it had not increased at all and remained at a  zero mm increase. Whilst only Galahe and Xiayun said it was heavy. 

The thunder and showers continued all throughout the afternoon at the top of the Shimen Reservoir, it was very misty and very rainy.  the North District Water Resources Bureau had stated that the rainfall at the Shimen Resivor was still fairly low, but it has increased from the morning, and during the afternoon it was picking up in pace, this helped the reservoirs water conditions.

The rainfall in the area also helped the flatlands, which are all farmlands that are now irrigated. he Taoyuan Management Office of the Farmland Water Resources Department said that the reservoir will be notified about when to adjust the water supply due to the rain, this should save and help with the irrigation of the water; according to the rice cultivation. 

Due to the decision made by the central Disaster Emergency Response Center for the drought, The Beishui Bureau said that at the present time 4.1 million tons of water will be supplied by the Shimen Reservoir for the first stage of rice in the Tao 3 Irrigation Area. The other water demand will be given to them by nearby ponds and streams according to the Taoyuan Management Office of the Agriculture and Water Department, due to the current storage capacity at the Shimen Reservoir the water supply of 4.1 million tons to the Tao 3 Irrigation District will be done with no problem, especially with the ongoing rainfall.
