Flood plans

THE city's flood control authorities have been equipped with 16 new pump trucks to handle any flooding emergency during the city's flood season this summer.

Shanghai Water Authority officials said the new machines, which will pump flood water into large underground drainage pipes, are able to drain 13,800 cubic meters of water per hour - the equivalent of six swimming pools 50 meters long and 25 meters wide.
