Reservoir hit by salt tide refilled

A RESERVOIR affected by the recent salt tide reopened its intake gates yesterday morning. After blocking the inflow for 22 days, the level at the Chenhang Reservoir had fallen to a record low of 3.08 meters.

Pumping was restarted after the chloride concentration fell below the national standard of 250 milligrams per liter. But it was later halted again when the levels rose again. Meanwhile, Qingcaosha Reservoir, which supplies 80 percent of the city’s water, was reported unlikely to run dry and will resume taking in water once the chloride levels fall low enough.
