Feitsui reservoir water level rises significantly after typhoon Megi

Typhoon Megi brought 754 mm of heavy rainfall on Feitsui reservoir watershed from Oct. 16 to 23, 2010 which results in the peak flood inflow reached 1,823 cubic meters per second. Owing to Feitsui Reservoir Administration (FRA) reserved flood retention storage in advance, the maximum flood released is only 1,135 cubic meters per second. The reservoir stored most of the flood to maximize water resource utilization and diminish the downstream flood risk. The water level rose 14.16 meters to El. 166.06 meter on Oct. 23 which is close to the maximum pool level El. 170 meter. The water storage increased 112 million cubic meters, which will satisfy five million citizens’ forty days water consumption.
