The water storage rate of the Hayamiura Dam, which is the main water source in Kagawa and Tokushima prefectures, is more than 50 points lower than normal, and the water storage rate is expected to fall below 30% in the future.



For this reason, the third water intake restriction will be enforced from 9 am on the 2nd, and the reduction rate of supply will be raised from 35% to 50% for Kagawa prefecture and from 16.9% to 18.2% for Tokushima prefecture. ..



The third water intake restriction has been enforced since 2013, nine years ago.



Kagawa Prefecture will hold a drought countermeasures headquarters meeting on the 1st before water intake restrictions, and in some areas such as Takamatsu City and Marugame City, water supply to general households will be reduced by 5% to 18.5%. Was reported.



According to the prefectural wide area water supply company group, if the decompression water supply is 15% or more, even ordinary households may feel that the water supply is poor.



At the meeting, we decided to start water intake from the regulating pond "Hozan Lake" in Mitoyo City.



Kagawa Prefecture says that it is expected that the additional reduction will be able to be compensated for, and that it will not have a significant impact on the lives of the citizens of the prefecture, but it is calling on the citizens of the prefecture to save more water.
