Continued dry weather has sent Kaohsiung into the first phase of water rationing yesterday. Across the city, late night water pressure has been lowered, public fountains closed and street cleaning service suspended. The rationing will likely save 3 percent to 5 percent of water consumption.

Kaohsiung Water Resources Bureau is enforcing stage 1 water rationing. Starting 11pm of March 20 to 6am of March 21, water supply was depressurized. Water will not be supplied to government's fountains and sweepers.

A water tank carries about four to five tons of water. (What is that for?) That is for watering around the factory premise, prevent dust from flying up. The water tank makes circling around premises.

Gaoping River's stream level was measured at 19.3cm in mid-February, by March 20 the level was down to 16.4cm, not far from the 13cm two years ago when southern region suffered from water shortage.

==HUANG CHEN-YUKaohsiung Water Resources Bureau ==
We are currently supplying the treated water for use with no direct contact with human skin for cleaning, street sweeping, pots and plants.

Kaohsiung Weather Station forecasts two chances of raining on March 23 and 25, but the incoming precipitation won't help much. Water saving by general public is essential. Although stage 1 water rationing does not create impact to industrial usage, but many companies have started saving water for possible water shortage crisis.

高雄開始實施一階段限水,夜間減壓供水,還有行政部門的噴水池或掃街車,都不再供水,為了減少衝擊,市府提供全市4座汙水廠的放流水,讓民眾取用,至於工業區,市府除了多宣導,業者也已經自行降低用量。

高雄水利局實施第一階段限水,20號起晚間11點到隔天6點,減壓供水,行政部門或國營事業的噴水池、掃街車都不再提供自來水。

==取水民眾 胡先生==
如果一桶(車)的話差不多4、5噸
那做什麼用
做灑水 就是廠區內粉塵飛揚
就是繞圈(灑水降低灰塵)

高屏溪攔河堰,2月中,川流量還測得19.3CMS,下午最新數據,只剩16.4CMS,越來越接近前年南部大缺水時,所測得的13CMS。

==高市水利局汙水營運科長 黃振佑==
(第一步先供放流水)可以供我們的
平常的非接觸使用的(用水)
(像是)揚塵的清掃 掃街
然後還有一些
包括我們的(植栽)澆灌

高雄氣象站觀測,3/23號及3/25號各有一波降雨機會,但雨量無法改善旱象,還是得靠民眾節約用水,而針對工業區用水,雖然一階段限水,對廠商影響不大,不少業者已經自主減少用水量,希望一起度過缺水危機。
