    Typhoon Morakot to bring much-needed rain to break drought (2009/08/07)

    The arrival of Typhoon Morakot has brought some good news, ending the current drought and allowing Taiwan reservoirs to quickly refill. The Water Resources Agency estimates that the Shihmen Reservoir will collect roughly the equivalent of the reservoir's total storage capacity. The typhoon rains have not only brought an end to northern Taiwan's drought control measures, but Shihmen Reservoir could begin discharging water by as early as Saturday.

    Heavy rains brought by Typhoon Morakot are expected to help the Shihmen Reservoir accumulate 200 million tons of water, more than the reservoir's total storage capacity. Prior to the typhoon, the reservoir had recorded low water levels that have quickly risen by a remarkable 10.37 meters, to a new water level of 234.63 meters.

    If we receive another 600 millimeters of continuous rainfall, then we will have to release water, said Jian Jhao-Chun Deputy Director of the Water Resources Agency’s Northern Region Office.


    Reservoirs throughout Taiwan, from north to south, have all been replenished, though the sudden rainfall may have been too much, stirring up sediment, leading to the implementation of special measures to access different layers of water to supply the public when needed.

    If water turbidity increases, we will start to implement measures to stratify water for downstream civilian water supply needs, said Jian.

    The arrival of Typhoon Morakot, has led to the suspension of drought control measures in the greater Taoyuan area, and will also temporarily resolve Taiwan’s water shortage crisis.

    水庫可解渴

    中颱莫拉克來襲,唯一的好消息,就是暫時解除限水危機,甚至讓全台水庫迅速解渴,原本快見底的石門水庫,估計這幾天將會進帳2億公噸,相當於一座水庫的蓄水量,讓北台灣旱象不僅可以解除,石門水庫更可能在8/8號開始洩洪。

    莫拉克帶來豪雨,預估將讓石門水庫進帳2億公噸的雨水,相當於多一座石門水庫的蓄水量,讓原本已經降到低水位以下的石門水庫水,一路攀升到距離滿水位只差10.37公尺的234.63公尺。

    [[北水局副局長 簡昭群]]
    “如果說以6百毫米的(持續)降雨情況
    也可能隨時會有洩洪的情況發生”

    全台水庫由北到南,通通瞬間解渴,但雨水一下下太多,還是可能造成水庫原水濁度過高,北水局表示,到時就會使用分層取水措施。

    [[北水局副局長 簡昭群]]
    “如果說濁度有上升的話
    我們會啟動我們剛完成的這個
    民生用水的取水措施(分層取水)
    來供應下游的民生用水需求”

    莫拉克來襲,讓大桃園地區的旱象可望解除,也暫時解除了全台缺水危機。
